You will pass through a collection of Tank Traps approximately 100m into Thorneycroft Wood. This obstacle was built to stop the progress of tanks or armoured vehicles. These date to the Second World War when it was feared that Britain could be invaded and can include lengths of ditch, walls or concrete blocks.
Lovely views across the open park.
