Tatton Park, winner of Visit England’s Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2014, is steeped in history and memories of world wars. Herds of red and fallow deer roam freely in 400 hectares (1,000 acres) of parkland whilst the meres, woodlands and rough grassland provide a perfect habitat for wildlife. The parkland is a stunning setting for a leisurely stroll, as are the 20 hectares (50 acres) of beautiful gardens reflecting over 250 years of garden design. This route follows ‘Billie the Beetle’ on a signed trail through one of the quiet woodlands on the estate.
DISTANCE: ¾mile (1.2km). TIME: About 1/2 hour.
SURFACE: Grass paths and woodland floor so you may find mud or tree roots on your way. There is a low 30m (33yds) long boardwalk just before the wood, offering a minimum width of 1.2m (4’).
GRADIENTS: Generally level, though the path can be uneven.
