A partnership for the future
The work to restore Farnborough's parkland has been ongoing since the 1960s and we now have a Higher-Level Stewardship (HLS) agreement with Natural England.
The aim is to deliver significant environmental benefits:
- for wildlife
- the historic environment
- resource protection
By embarking on a parkland conservation and restoration programme, it's hoped that the parkland views will be restored back to 18th-century design.
Recreating an 18th-century experience
Views and vistas are fundamental to the designed landscape at Farnborough, with framed views capturing the pastoral idyll, ornamented with garden buildings, farm buildings, temples and an obelisk.
There are circuit walks along shaded avenues (known as the terrace) and walks beside water with the pools and cascade.
The terrace walk once allowed visitors to admire wide long-distance views across the landscape; it's our ambition to provide this experience to visitors once more.
