Flowers are pretty; toilets are not

The Carrs is parkland that follows the Bollin River for just under a mile from Wilmslow to Twinnies Bridge. It is Wilmslow's favourite walking ground, where, in the morning, there are as many dogs as people.

After rare falls of snow, the Carrs' one grassy slope is ridden by sledgers and the parkland becomes a Bosch canvas of colour. In recent years, rumours of fish have surfaced and there have been sightings of anglers.
