Brun Valley Forest Park map
A large area of linked forest and open land.
Brun Valley Forest Park is adjacent to more formal parks, so there is a combination of fast grassland and traditional forest.
The forest area runs along either bank of the River Brun and its tributaries. It is a patchwork of mature standing forest, old mine workings partly covered with regenerated young plantation and some contoured fields. There is a network of paths for public access around Rowley Lake and the forest. There are several bridges over the main river, but in dry weather it is fordable at many points.
