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.

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

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