Staunton Country Park Guided Walk

History and Heritage themed

These walks will be short (approximately 1 mile) along an easy-access path circumnavigating Staunton Lake taking in the stunning views and vistas of the Parkland. The walks will be taking place during some of the vegetation clearance and development work this year so you will also see 'behind the scenes' during the restoration project. Visit with friends, family or on your own. Meet others who are interested in history, wildlife and plant life within the park. Staunton Country Park is characterised by 100 acres of parkland encompassing an ornamental lake, open grassland as well as ancient woodland with hedgerows and ditches. It is home to a variety of wildlife including reptiles, small mammals, bats, roe deer and a variety of wild and pond birds as well as birds of prey and our Fauna and Flora walks will give you the chance to see some of these. The Flora and Fauna walks will vary in content as the seasons change throughout the year. The History and Heritage of Staunton Country Park walks take in the Regency landscape created by George Staunton and his successor William Stone and its range of follies, Grade II listed buildings and ornamental lake. Learn about the history right on your doorstep. 75% of online payments will go to the Friends of Staunton Country Park (Facebook link- https://www.facebook.com/groups/124585941530721/) who are raising funds for further projects in Leigh Park Gardens. 12 places available
