Wollaston pit…

Yesterday I got rid of the kids and Mum and I took a walk to find Wollaston Pit. They are not easy to find and it’s really hard to explain so if you scroll down to the bottom of this post you can see the map. I have drawn onto the map the route we took yesterday but looking at it now I’m not sure it was the most direct way to get there!

As you can see it’s a fair walk (it was a 4-5 mile round trip) so pretty long for the kids plus it did include a jump over a small ditch and through a tunnel in some trees. It was also really muddy so I wouldn’t recommend it on a wet day and definitely not suitable for prams.

I must say that I have since heard that this may be private property but I’m not too sure. Although it is not all that well known there is a lot of evidence of others having been there so we definitely aren’t the only ones!

The water in the pit is really clear and it is obvious people have been swimming in there. There is a small but steep bank to get in but it’s not clear what the bottom is like or how deep it is.

After our visit to the Pit, we stopped in at the pocket park. I grew up in Wollaston and have walked and driven past this park many times but never actually gone in.

It’s a cute and pretty park with colourful flowers and a few benches inside. It’s a nice spot for a little rest or visit on your way past and with it’s variety of plants a great place to take the kids to talk about the different species.
