Sherborne Park autumn Ranger walks

Our rangers will take you off the normal footpaths to see some of Sherborne Park's wildlife.

  • Booking essential

See red kites soaring overhead in big skies and sweeping views across Sherborne Old Park and Sherborne Brook as you join our rangers for a seasonal walk off the beaten track to find some of the farmland birds, raptors and other wildlife on the estate.

Walks will head from the Watermeadows car park across parts of the estate that aren't usually accessible to the public, but which are thriving with wildlife.

Walks will last around an hour and a half, covering 2-3 miles.
