New walk

Apologies for the lack of recent posts - I have been on holiday. After all that relaxing and wandering along the beaches of Donegal I'm back and raring to go.

Our latest new walk officially opens this weekend; Ron and his team of engagement volunteers will be offering free guided talks along the new section of path on Saturday and Sunday. The walk is an extension of the woodland walk, offering approximately 1 kilometer of new path (making the full walk from the stable block to Mile Walk to woodland walk and back again just over 4 kilometres - thanks to volunteer Rod for measuring it out for us!) This week has seen the finishng touches going on - Becky and Sarah have been grinding stumps, Mark has put in a new gate and Colin has been leading a volunteer team setting out the fingerposts to direct you around the route. Ron's interpretation boards mean that there will be plenty to learn about as you wander around, from the history of plantations to making charcoal. Come up to the woodland walks via the deer park or the Mile Walk to find the new route!


  1. My Wife and I are regular visitors to Attingham, with our dogs and thoroughly enjoyed the new walk.

    It was very peaceful, many thanks.

  2. That's lovely to hear, thank you! Glad you all enjoyed it, hopefully you will like the new routes that we put in next year as well.
