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.

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

New Pavilion of Play (summer 2022)

The summer's here and we have some great ideas to fill it full of fun and adventure

Over in the Field of Play is a brand new Pavilion of Play for the school summer holidays. The pavilion includes lookout points, giant ear trumpets and crawl through holes, allowing families to observe nature in new ways.  The pavilion is surrounded by a giant straw bale maze, promising lots of fun for families with little ones (and not-so-little ones!) until the first weekend in September.
