Biddulph Grange Country Park
Tel : +44 01538 395577
A 30 hectare (73 acre) site that was originally part of the larger Biddulph Grange Estate, comprising of woodland with meadows, a large lake and ponds.
Based on the Victorian theme of landscaped views combined with natural features Biddulph Grange Country Park offers you chance to explore a historic landscape as laid out by its Victorian and early 20th Century creators.
Paths have been restored and new ones created to give easy access throughout the park. Although the site is on a hillside, wheelchair access is usually achieved at least as far as the main pool, an outstanding feature at the centre of the site and where a stone boat house from 1904 has been restored. In March 2000 a 100-year-old hydroelectric scheme was reinstated at the site's visitor centre giving an example of how power can be generated sustainably on a small scale for local use.
