    Route Description

    This short walk is way marked from the main car park.

    These walks are situated in a working forest environment and may be subject to diversion and closure from time to time.

    Leading off the Waterfall Trail the red trail takes you up along the side of the Deer park. On the right hand side there are maturing stand of Spruce and oak trees. The trail at the top of the small hill passes into the deer park and you can observe close at hand the impressive herd of white Fallow deer. After leaving the deer park the trail passes by two parasol beech trees. They were discovered on the estate and brought to the front of the Manor House. Earliest records indicate they were planted there some time before 1885. The trail then passes through the ornamental gardens before returning to the car park.
