About the park
Once part of the Trosley Towers Estate, Trosley Country Park is
now home to a rich variety of wildlife, and a mixture of woodland
and open chalk grassland slopes.
The chalk grassland at Trosley is classified as a Site of
Special Scientific Interest, while the grassland supports an array
of butterflies every summer, including the Chalkland Blue.
There are three waymarked trails – the blue route trail leading
over the downland is very steep in parts, while the red route is
much gentler. The yellow route, meanwhile, is an easy access
trail suitable for buggies and wheelchairs. All provide spectacular
views over the downs. There’s also an outdoor trim trail should the
steep paths not prove tough enough!
At the Bluebell Café, meanwhile, you can try the local, seasonal
produce. The menu includes home-made snacks, light meals and cakes,
and even home-made dog biscuits for canine companions! The cafe
also serves ice creams, soft drinks and fair trade tea and coffee.
For children, the playarea, close to the Bluebell Cafe is extremely
popular. Contact Bluebell Cafe - 01732 820315 or firstname.lastname@example.org for
more information on what they can offer.
For the more adventurous, the park is also a good base to visit
the Coldrum Stones, and ancient listed monument if 15 sarsen
