Parkland walk - Yellow Route

Walking trail

A challenging walk around the Grade II listed parkland. Veteran trees abound which are now home to many species of wildlife. Work has taken place around the Lawn Pool to open up some of the original views to and from the Georgian mansion house. This route can be quite muddy at this time of year, so make sure you wear suitable footwear. Please be aware that there is currently a diversion in place whilst we undertaken essential maintenance work at Lawn Pool. As a result, this walk is currently half a mile longer than normal. Please follow all diversion signs and be cautious of heavy machinery on site.
