Mouldon Hill Country Park
A Lovely Park For Dog Walking. There Is A Lake Which Often Has Anglers On It So Best To Keep On A Lead For That Part, But The Actual Hill Is Perfect For Dog Walkers And There Is Lots Of Fields To Wander Into. It Is Also Not Open To Cyclists Which Is Nice. The Second Photo Displayed Above Is Copyrighted To Brian Robert Marshall And Licensed For Reuse Under This Creative Commons Licence.
