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. Walkers can choose from
two themed walks focused on the “Flora and Fauna” or the “History and Heritage” of the Park.

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.
