Hiked for half an hour hoping to catch a glimpse of Jim Hensons famous Fraggles. Very disappointed to learn that this is in fact AGGLEstone rock and is completely Fraggleless. They really should put up signs to warn other FraggleFans. Otherwise can't fault the rock...More

This is a soft gentle walk which is accessible with off road prams (not wheelchairs) be sure to wear adequate footwear as a lot of creatures around when it's hot!! Ideally KEEP dogs on leads for their own safety.
