After reading on http://www.mummybird.com we saw that there was a post about the spinney in Little Bytham, which is near Peterborough. We thought it looked like a lot of fun and decided to take our little monkey. We really wasn’t to sure if he would be to young but decided to give it a go anyway.
Sunday afternoon we got all wrapped up as it was a bit chilly and off we went. It is not the easiest place to find and is not signposted that well. We parked up and thought it looked lovely, with all the trees and it was just so quiet. Even thought this is a place where children can play and there were children there, it was so peaceful and quiet.
The play area is set over 5.5 acres of land and it was part of a millennium project to make it a nice place for people to go to. In the first part of the area is a big tangle web which the children can climb up and a big swing from a tree. I must say this looked really good fun. You can then walk through the wooded area a little way and there is a couple of slides which our little monkey loved going on, a wobbly bridge, zip slide and swings. I was really impressed with what i saw and think it would be even better in the summer. There is also an under 5s area with a seesaw, baby slide, and a play house.
If you live in or around the area this place is defiantly worth a visit. The work that has been done here has been done by volunteers and they have done a great job. You can read more about the work that has been done on there web site.
