June this year has been made all the more exciting by the rather late arrival of Spring combined with some overdue warmth and sunshine! June is also when The Wildlife Trust’s ‘30 Days Wild’ nature challenge takes place.
Panshanger Park’s magnificent herd of English Longhorn Cattle will soon be returning to the site. English Longhorns are one of the most majestic of our native breeds and are perfect for grazing historic parklands.
The River Mimram is a chalk river, so named because most of the water in the river comes from springs flowing from the underground chalk aquifer – a natural underground water store. This creates the clear and well-oxygenated water that you can see flowing today. Chalk rivers are a globally rare habitat as there are only 200 worldwide and England has 85% of them!
Works will be starting soon along the banks of the River Mimram at Panshanger Park. Fencing is being erected along the edge of the Rifle Butts at the Eastern side of the park. This is being done to protect the fragile riverbank wildlife habitats from human activity.
As restrictions are starting to ease we may be enjoying our new-found freedom to go a little further afield and meet up with friends and family, who we may have only been seeing in 2D on a screen for the past few months!
Tarmac has submitted a planning application to Hertfordshire County Council to create an additional car park on the western side of Panshanger Park.
Panshanger Park has launched a new ‘Code of Conduct’ to enhance visitors’ enjoyment when visiting the park.
Panshanger Park is pleased to welcome a new addition to the park.
Spring is almost upon us, the days are getting lighter and longer and this optimism is being felt by the wildlife too!
Panshanger Park is pleased to announce the opening of the Western approach path. The new path is a permissive bridleway which can be enjoyed on foot, horse or bike, and links the western side of the park to the Panshanger Great Oak and the remains of Panshanger house.
