WALK REPORT: 16th May 2016
Rozelle is just absolutely stunning at this time of year: The flowers have all started to bloom and the whole park is awash with colour. I have been here many times in the past but always seem to stick to the same loop around Rozelle House and around the duck pond, but there were so many other little footpaths I wanted to explore! Today I took the opportunity with Thomas in his buggy to do this loop around the outer edge of the estate and I was pleasantly surprised to come across this beautiful woodland. You are very much hidden away amongst the trees so only get the odd peek at Rozelle House and it’s large garden areas, but that didn’t bother me as I had seen all that before.
This was however my first visit to the Remembrance Woodland and I was so impressed by it! I had walked past the wooden poppy carvings next to the duck pond a few times but didn’t know what they were for; I thought they were marking the start of a walking track or something. Not altogether wrong I guess! You really must pay it a visit if you haven’t already. The carvings are so detailed, I can’t even imagine the time and effort that’s gone into creating this battlefield scene. Truly amazing.
