Guided Walks at Staunton Country Park

  • 05/03/2019 - 17/09/2019
    10:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

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. 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.

  1. This looks great – for my parents in Havant – who don’t use the internet. Is there any way they can get more info / use the phone to book etc without internet access please?

  2. Hi, Thank you for your comment and very valid one! It is very useful for us to know if some people do not use the internet to the success of the programme. I will send you an email to give you my personal contact details.

    Thanks
    Maddy
