I feel very lucky to live so near to this park. I also live near Sutton Park, but I much prefer New Hall Valley because it's quieter, and feels more like you are in the countryside. I never thought I'd enjoy running, and I'm not sure I would at all if I didn't have this beautiful path to run down. I often see lots of interesting butterflies and dragonflies there, and birds, including jays and herons. Until last year, I had no idea this part of New Hall park existed! It's perfect for running because it's mostly shaded by trees, it's flat, and part of it is next to a stream, so it feels fairly cool there.
Without further ado, here are lots of photos of my route! Once again, these were taken with the LomoChrome Purple film.
