What’s going on at the Park?

Closed till spring 2021
The park has been flat out all year supported by the most amazing committed volunteers and supporters so that we could remain open
Supporting our NHS, Key workers and community through Covid-19 crisis.
Our huge and grateful thanks.
The park is finally starting its transformation from quarry to something very special and much more than just a country park. We are becoming a landscape, last seen by our ancestors. A huge uplift in our ecology, flora and fauna, a broader ecological base to support more diversity of species and vegetation, a place for our mind, soul and body to relax and enjoy, all long planned for.
This is going to require a lot of work and effort by our team with the complete closure of the park till the core work is complete and no public access. This will take at least till spring 2021.
We would greatly appreciate your co-operation and support.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported our progress over the, too many years, taken to get to this point.
Our directors past and present, all those monthly Donors, financial supporters, corporate sponsors and supporters. Those who have who been behind the park, the vision and the work, the future legacy.
The future park is going to be amazing. We are all very very excited for work to begin. But not as excited as we are to once again open the gates and reveal the vision to reality.
“What we do in life echoes in eternity”.
