Are you bonkers for conkers?

The conker season is upon us but where in Huddersfield can you find the best specimens?

If you are heading out with the kids you will want to be away from main roads, so parkland and woods are the best options.

Greenhead Park

There’s plenty of conker trees and lots of space for the children to run around when they get bored of conker collecting.

Beaumont Park

There’s no shortage of mature horse chestnut trees, not to mention play equipment in this popular Victorian park.
