Gower Hey Wood

If you follow yesterday's disused railway line westwards for about a mile, you'll cross a footpath. A right turn would take you through the backs of houses onto busy Dowson Road. Turn left and you'll be in Gower Hey Wood.

Instead of the noise of traffic, here you will hear the wind whistling through the trees; blackbirds, tits, starlings, magpies and wood pigeons. That rustling could be a fox or a squirrel.

And watch where you put your feet; after rain it takes a long time for the sun to penetrate and harden the mud.
