What's available?

The Field of Play is the much loved play space at Attingham, with lots of room to run around, natural play structures and some traditional play equipment.

Natural play structures including the log piles, earth mounds and willow tunnels. At each end of the Field you will find some tunnel structures unique to Attingham - the Hill Fort and the Pipe Monster.

There's lots of space for picnics and you're welcome to bring your own play and sports equipment to play games like football, cricket or rounders.

There are two new sanitising stations (hand gel) within the Field of Play, and handwashing facilities are available in the toilets in the Field of Play.

The Field is a big space and parents and guardians are responsible for supervising their children while they play.

Developing the Field of Play

The white hut, the roundabout, and the wooden wheelbarrow slide have come to the end of their life and have been removed from the Field. You can find out more about our future plans for play in this space in the article below.
