Northern field 

In the northern field, the river has been diverted to create a natural space. River dipping and paddling is popular in the summer months.

Middle and southern fields

In the middle and southern fields, the river has been opened up for use so you can see the wildlife living here. If you're lucky you may see the resident kingfishers and heron.
