New ‘House Link Path’ opens to the public this week at Panshanger Park as improvement works continue

November 9, 2017

Visitors to the award winning site can now enjoy a new circular walk which takes in the famous Great Oak.

The new permissive path – which goes alongside the site of the former Panshanger House, links the Oak Trail to the paths around the arable land in the north of the park.

This new addition to the 15km of trails already enjoyed across Panshanger means the spectacular Oak Trail can now be completed as a circular walk.

It is the latest project to be completed in a programme of improvement works taking place over the autumn and winter by Tarmac and partner, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.

Michael Charlton, Tarmac’s Restoration Manager at Panshanger Park, said: “We are delighted to open the new House Link Path. We have listened to feedback from our park users who have been asking for the option to complete the Oak Trail as a circular walk which is made possible by the new link.”

“Due to the proximity to our quarrying operations and sensitive heritage features we have erected fencing either side of the path. However, this will be removed in the future when our quarrying operations come to an end and our plans for this area of the park can be further developed.”
