Free Woodland Walks
The Woodlands have dominated Trentham for over 1000 years
Enjoy the tranquillity of acres of free parkland and woodland to a more strenuous climb up to the monument at the south entrance of the estate.
In 1833 George Granville 2nd, embarked on an extensive rebuilding project on the estate. This began the era that created Trentham in the way you see it today. He commissioned the statue of the 1st Duke of Sutherland which crowns Monument Hill, in July 1833. The statue was completed in 1835.
If you’re feeling energetic, take a walk up Monument Hill and enjoy spectacular views of Trentham and beyond!
The parts of the woodland which are free to enter are The Kings Wood, The Monument, The Oaks and The Parkland Walks.
All the walks are clearly signposted and areas of interest are highlighted, to ensure you don’t miss a thing.
The public use of the Woodland Walks is encouraged, but we politely remind guests that this is a private estate and we reserve the right to refuse admission or to remove from the estate any person whose behaviour is inappropriate.
A major landscape restoration of historic parkland is now in progress at the North of the estate.
