Night-time wildlife walks (previously known as Bat Walks)

Join our Ranger team to experience the nocturnal wildlife that lives at Quarry Bank

  • Booking essential

Enjoy a guided walk through the estate with our experienced Ranger team.

What night time residents will you spot? Perhaps Barn owls, Tawny owls, badgers or maybe some of the bat species that live here.

Learn about wildlife ecology, life cycles, feeding habits and perhaps have a chance to listen to bat noises as they fly overhead.

These popular annual walks have been expanded to include all potential species you have chance to see, but we can't guarantee they will appear.

The walk will finish in the Mill Yard. Ticket price includes a bat biscuit per person.

National Trust admission charges do not apply. Recommended for children aged 12+
