This area of beautiful parkland bordered by the Lambrok Stream and situated in the West Wiltshire countryside, has a distinctly rural feel. It is a popular destination for families, walkers, dog walkers and runners and those who just wish to enjoy the fresh air and countryside.
A parkrun, held here every Saturday morning, attracts many people, both young and not so young. Exercise is good for our health and mental wellbeing and so much more enjoyable in such attractive surroundings.Continue reading “SOUTHWICK COUNTRY PARK”

“Just to say what a great website! Bang up to date even though it is the middle of winter – with bullfinch sightings and sounds one might hear in January etc. My Mum is in a home in Trowbridge and I’ll be visiting her from Yorkshire soon so I’ve been looking around local websites for places we might go. So many give the message that yes you might like to visit but not now, wait until spring! – but not yours. Well done somebody!”
Buddy, a handsome and very energetic springer spaniel, one of our volunteers, who regularly brings his human, Louise, to FoSCP work parties. Thank you Buddy .
