Facebook page for The Spinney

9 March 2020 at 05:59

Why not sign up to the facebook group for The Spinney.

This piece of woodland around the old Park Prewett Hospital site offers a great circular walk.

Funding has been secured to improve the signage and access for the future.  This is likely to include some small path improvements, boards explaining about the history and environment and a sculpture trail both in The Spinney and in the neighbouring development.

A sculpture for the start of the trail can be found by the open space at the junction of Divot Way and Balata Way in the David Wilson Homes development.

The facebook group will update you on events and developments to improve this space for the community.

Search "The Spinney, Rooksdown" in groups on facebook

The Spinney is owned by The Land Trust with Rooksdown Community Association as their local management partner.

Please contact 01256 869626 or admin@rooksdownonline.com
