Woodchip Footpaths

+ more

Some parts of the woodland areas have woodchip paths which are more inaccessible for wheelchair users and those with mobility difficulties.  The softer woodchip can be hard to travel over with wheels, and the paths are not very clearly marked.

Grass Footpaths

+ more

These are worn paths across the grass for visitors, although they are not very clearly marked.  The ground is uneven, but the grass is quite short, so it might be possible to use some of them with a wheelchair if you are careful.  The grass paths across the meadow are harder work due to the slope of the site and the longer grass.  Earth paths across the parkland are largely quite steep, and the ground is more soft.

Other Sites

The barn is surrounded by packed earth and woodchip, and is sometimes used for educational visits. It has moveable chairs, but the floor is a bit uneven. The charcoal burner is accessible via. a short detour from the wheelchair foorpath, and is mostly surrounded by log piles.
As always, please use your discretion when deciding which parts of the site to tackle. All of it is well worth a look, but bear in mind that it is a natural environment, and so access is not always straightforward!
