Weston Park on the Shropshire / Staffordshire border famous for hosting world leaders and royalty invites walkers on a three mile Spring Walk on Sunday April 10th.
The discovery morning walk will provide an ideal opportunity to admire the buds of spring as bulbs and wildlife begin to emerge.
Weston Parks Head Gardener Martin Gee, who will lead the walk, has firm roots in the stately homes heritage, just like the plants and trees he looks after. He comes from a generation of horticulturists who have lived and worked on the estate since the early 1800s.
Martin, who has been Head Gardener for the last 30 years has planned an entertaining walk, he said: The grounds and gardens at Weston Park have been my passion for many years and I find it very satisfying to pass on my knowledge to others.
We will be exploring not only the springtime activity of the park but also how its inhabitants, both human and of the furry variety, have contributed to the Park and Gardens we see today.
The walk starts at 10.30am and costs 5.00 per adult, 4.50 for seniors and 3.00 for children and is payable on the day in the Granary Farm Shop.
The Granary Grill, Bar & Restaurant is open for a Sunday Roast Lunch after the walk, reservations are advised.
