The Woodland Walk
The Walk was created in 1999 from an area that was the north end of Hornsea Mere one thousand years ago. On the Walk is a small lake, a remnant of Hornsea Mere. The Wetland and Stumpery are also part of the Ancient Mere and were created with the help of a Lottery Grant in 2016. The walk takes you through The Arboretum, where the existing collection of indigenous and specimen trees has recently been extended by the planting of a collection of new trees. As the Arboretum, along with The Wetlands and The Stumpery is to be used by schools for educational purposes it too was eligible for assistance from The National Lottery.
