VISITORS to Tatton Park will be able to enjoy a new walking experience following the creation of a conservation area.

The Beech Avenue Conservation Trial is 2 kilometres long and takes approximately 45 minutes to complete. 

The trail was created following conservation work to protect the veteran tree habitat of Beech Avenue, which was planted in 1739. 

Along the way walkers will be able to learn about the history, wildlife and landscape features of the avenue and the surrounding areas through a number of interpretation panels, from the bats and insects that inhabit the area, to the ice house and tank bridges that can be seen along the route.

Park manager Phil Lucas said: “Visitors are set to enjoy a new parkland experience whilst at the same time helping conserve Tatton’s valuable and unique landscape so future generations can enjoy the same.”
