  • A really nice, well maintained common. I only walked through a small part but it had open grassland, a woodland area, a series of paths which were easy to follow abs much more. The outdoor pool is located here too (which is not free entry like the common).
  • Stunning centre to the wonderful Letchworth Garden City. Such an amazing local resource. 70 acres of walkies paradise for couples, families, dogs and children. So lucky to have it on the doorstep.
