About Colby Glen

A narrow and rather overgrown glen, being one of the few glens left to develop without intervention. Paths and bridges are cleared and maintained, but the rest is the responsibility of nature. There is plenty of wild beauty to enjoy. Note the paths are narrow dirt tracks and not very easy to walk along in places. There is a grassy area at one end of the glen for picnics or games. This area is sheltered by trees.
