Sunset at Brickfields Country Park

About

Situated off Boxalls Lane, in Aldershot, Hampshire, is probably one of the British Isles smallest and least known country parks, (unless you know of one under 8 acres !). Opened in 1985 following two years of extensive work by Rushmoor Borough Council and the Manpower Services Commission, Brickfields Country Park was reclaimed from the remains of a derelict Victorian brickworks whose clay diggings had been used as an unofficial rubbish tip. Brickfields Country Park is a peaceful, natural park, known only by local residents and a few in the know - and now you !.

Operated by The Friends of Brickfields Country Park in conjunction with Rushmoor Borough Council, The Friends were formed in 1992 by a group of local residents wanting to become involved the furtherance of a local amenity. The group operates under license from Rushmoor Borough Council as part of the Parks Department, performing varied conservation tasks from rubbish clearing to building new paths. We are associated to Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership which links us to other conservation groups nation-wide for training, and advice.

We welcome involvement from anyone, as members of the group or occasional volunteers. Work parties are held in the park on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from 1:30pm (12:30 in the winter), onwards unless it is bucketing down !
