Record details

Ankerdine Common Picnic Place

There's something very magical about this site that is hard to put your finger on. It could be to do with the spectacular views across the Teme Valley from the high vantage point. Regular sightings of Buzzards gliding on thermals may help. Following the steep paths as they twist and turn through the mossy woods certainly sets the imagination alight.

Opening Times
Open daily, 24 hour pedestrian and vehicular access. Admission is free.
Site Location

The track to the parking area is steep and narrow, as are many of the footpaths, so take care.
