15th & 16th of September you can walk around the old mining machine Dragline on the St Aidan’s site
Yes Fairburns Ing is great too with free entry but I wasn’t sure where to park for free It’s only £3 on site (last time people moaned about parking car charges on another free day out I posted) It has a play area with climbing area, swing and others bits. You can pay to do pond dipping, or hire an explorer backpack. It’s a lovely cheap day out. https://www.rspb.org.uk/reserves-and-events/reserves-a-z/fairburn-ings/
This and Fairburn Ings, close by, also free. A great day out for nature lovers or just for taking the kids out.
Free parking :.If you park across LemonRoyd Marina it is free parking as well.Quite a big area and relatively flatish walking.
