Picnic Site, free entry
The picnic is on the site of an old copper factory that produced the first trans atlantic telephone cable but only a few remants of this past industrial activity can now be seen on the site. A heritage trail leads from the picnic area into the adjacent village and there are excellent links to the rights of way network.
