About

Very leisurely stroll through the park at Ankerwycke on gentle terrain. Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Ankerwycke hosts a wonderful array of wildlife. Listen out for the green woodpeckers loud, laughing call, or see them feeding on insects found in dead wood. The emerald dragonfly, and large red dragonfly can be seen darting between the ponds and the parks paths. In spring, see the bare grounds erupt into a carpet of snowdrops, thought to be planted here in Victorian times.

Youll pass the ruins of St Mary's Priory, built in the 12th century, it was formerly the home to a community of Benedictine nuns.
