Woodland walk green trail at Brockhampton

Explore the natural green space on a trail through the woodland with the family. The woodland was once part of the Leggett-inspired parkland. Some of the large older specimen trees were planted in the late 1700s as part of this re-design. Why not see how many native trees you can spot during your walk? Just remember to pop on your wellies, as the paths are very muddy at this time of year.

Start point

The car park at Lower Brockhampton

Step 1

Walk back towards the entrance to the car park. Fork left following the green markers into the field that runs parallel to the drive. Walk away from the manor until you go through the gate at the other end of the field.

Step 2

Follow the path into the woods. By the stream, follow the left fork in the path. Walk over the stream and begin climbing up the sides of the valley, following the green arrows. The slope is quite steep and the ground can be uneven in places, so take care.

Step 3

Follow the green way markers on a path to the right, then continue along the path. When you approach the stream, walk past Harold the Horse can cross over the stream.

Step 4

After crossing the stream, take the next left and continue walking until you reach Grove Pool. Take the path on the right and continue upwards, passing the house on your left.

Step 5

Continue straight ahead down the hill. At the end of the path, turn left and cross over the stream.

Step 6

Once you have crossed over the stream continue straight on, following the green way markers.

Step 7

Soon you will arrive back near the first stream you crossed over. Follow the path back over the stream and keep going until you are out of the woods. Walk through the field until you arrive back at the car park.

End point

The car park at Lower Brockhampton.
