Getting wild at Panshanger Park

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.

Return of Panshanger Park’s conservation stars

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 and Panshanger Park

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!

Protecting the River Mimram

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.

Volunteering is the name of the game

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!

Western approach path opened at Panshanger Park

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.
