The playground is part of a visitors centre that also incorporates a kids-friendly walk, a beautifully renovated 17th Century watermill — which now contains a bar — and a recently restored small lake. It’s going to great when summer comes around.
When I walked by though it was, inevitably enough, raining.
Smeagol does now have a door fitted, so he won’t get too wet, but I think he’s going to need a bit of grass to grow before his hole starts to feel like a home.
That said, I did cross the bridge, which (luckily) wasn’t as slippery as I had initially feared.
