415 Anderton Nature Park

You can't miss the flowers in Anderton Nature Park, for they are about six feet high and made of wood. It's a novel idea to illustrate the plants to be found in this delightful lime-rich area. As well as marsh orchids, fragrant orchids, ragged robin, dog roses and common centaury, there is great variety among the mini-saltmarshes, woodland, grassy areas and riverbank. There's even a bird hide. So put binoculars and a flower book into your rucksack and you'll have a great day out.
