Events & Volunteer Days

Snowdrop Sundays -  2nd, 9th, 16th & 23rd February


Our usual Snowdrop Sundays will be held on the 2nd, 9th, 16th & 23rd February. The grounds will be open from 12 Noon and will close at 4.00 pm (last admission at 3.30 pm). Admission is £3 for Adults and Children enter free. Dogs are permitted at this Open Day but must be on a short non-retractable lead.  As usual access is from the A59 on the east side and north of Bank Bridge. Due to the number of people who attend this event and the condition of the estate roads, drivers are asked to travel at a maximum speed of 5 mph on the estate roads. We expect to be catering and our normal fund raising stall is also expected to be present on the 3rd & 4th Sundays, weather permitting.

Please note that as the restoration work on the Hall is currently going on, we have restricted access to the Grounds and we are not always able to run our events as previously.  We regret that our woodland paths may not be suitable for disabled visitors in wheelchairs at this time. We also advise that in the winter months visitors should come in suitable footwear as some of the newly created paths may become muddy at times.
