Instead of taking the river path we decided to see where the footpath goes as it leaves the river and heads through the woods above Bunny Meadows and up through Holly Hill Park.
The path emerges from the woods at the end of a private path and jetty with a wonderful elevated view of the river.Formerly the grounds of Holly Hill Mansion much of th woodland is now managed by the council as a woodland park, however there are still plenty of signs of the old Victorian estate like this wrought iron gate.
Interesting to see what's hidden away in the trees just a few yards from the water.
