A major programme of parkland and heathland restoration is underway throughout Trentham North Park.
We are delighted to announce, that The Trentham Estate has been honoured with the designation of a Diamond Wood. The Estate’s North Park has been selected as one of just 60 Diamond Woods across the country in The Woodland Trust’s Jubilee Woods project, which marks HM The Queen’s 60 years as monarch.

Parkland and heathland restoration will include revealing both the hidden 18th Century parkland landscape designed by Capability Brown, as well as the remains of the Patte d’oie (Goose’s Foot) Lime Tree Avenues and historic drive to the west.
The first phase of this 5 year scheme, commenced in February 2012, and included the removal of the commercial Pine Tree Forest, so that this area could be restored and planted with native Sessile Oak Trees. Planting commenced in November 2012, and there’s plenty of opportunities for you to get involved in planting, or Dedicate a Tree to support the Douglas Macmillan Hospice.
