Beatons Wood is where one can see the profusion of bluebells and two ponds.

Slight incline in places but more seats available in those areas.
The Farm Trail paths are not suitable either for wheelchairs, mobility scooters or those who have difficulties with walking, as in places paths can be narrow and hazardous.
