Stay Wild - Adventures in the Woods

A short walk from home there is a lovely wood to explore. It's known locally as 'Heaton Woods' but is actually named Reynolds Wood & Sean's Ponds as part of the Heaton Woods Trust.

There will be an Open Day Sunday 9th July 2017 at 11am until 4pm with activities at Sean's Ponds and adjacent mowed meadows.

There are two entrances:-
Aireville Avenue BD9 4EW or Park Drive BD9 4DT

There are lots of different routes to explore, picnic areas, and even a couple of tree swings hidden away near the streams.
Today we did a spot of pond dipping, raspberry picking & played on the swing.
