Refresh your senses at Brockhampton this winter

Welly wanging on the estate

This winter there are lots of opportunities to make the most of your New Year resolutions and get outdoors. You can warm up afterwards with refreshments in the granary shop and kiosk near the manor house.

Discover a new you with welly wanging each weekend throughout January at Brockhampton. Or why not squelch through the mud on a welly walk?

You can also get out and be active with six walks across the estate from short strolls near the manor house and orchards to challenging walks rising through the landscape which take you from Lower Brockhampton to the top of the hills near the edge of the Estate. On a walk you might spot snowdrops poking through the frosty ground and wildlife hunting for food in the woods and parkland. With no leaves on the trees this is a great time of year for wildlife spotting.

Inspired by our history in 2018 we are exploring the wartime at Brockhampton. From the Women’s Land Army and timber Jills who worked the estate when the men were away at war to the way in which families in the manor house made the most of estate produce when the ration was short and times were harsh. So do your duty and why not join us throughout 2018 for wartime inspired events and activities.
