Free Woodland Walks at Trentham

Woodland Walk Update 

Our South entrance car park will be open 8am - 6pm for access to Spring Valley walk through to Kingswood.

Monument Wood has re-opened to the public, there are no sheep grazing this area at the moment.

The closure of the wood had worked very well this year with no losses of livestock and plenty of work being able to be done by the team.

As usual please keep dogs on a short lead, and take any litter and dog waste home with you whilst on the estate, which includes the woodland walk areas, to protect wildlife and negate the need for staff to have to deal with potential wildlife and livestock injuries. These incidents also have an impact on our emergency services, which are already playing a vital role. Our security team will be doing rolling checks in these areas to ensure that this is adhered to.

We would like to make members of the public aware that all access routes onto the walks involve touch points in the form of kissing gates or styles. Some pathways are also narrow in places, with steps which require the use of handrails. We would advise the use of hand sanitiser after using these.

We ask that any visitors using the walks observe the social distancing rules (staying 2 metres apart from each other at all times). No cycling is permitted.

If you are walking in the area and have any concerns, then please call our Security Team on 07966 247393. ​

Woodland Walks at Trentham

The Woodlands have dominated Trentham for over 1000 years

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.

The woodland walks are a perfect place for a dog walk too! To respect our wildlife, dogs must be kept on a short lead in all areas and at all times. Please use the dog bins provided.

The woodland walks also incorporates the Two Saints Way Walk, which was featured on BBC Radio 4’s Ramblings Show with Clare Balding.
