Farming at Godolphin

Learn about Godolphin's farming past and present by completing the family trail visiting the old agriculture farm buildings. Exploring the estate is a great way to see the farming past and present, walk through old fields once used as rabbit warrens and a deer park or perhaps you'll see the farmers cattle at the top of Godolphin hill grazing.
