Walking in the Footsteps of Pilgrims 2
Nightingale Valley is the sister wood of St Anne’s Wood and is equally interesting! This woodland walk will follow the Pilgrim’s Way from the site of the medieval fish pond to the hamlet of Nightingale Valley.
Join us to discover the influence the priest who lived at the top of the precipice had over the people who lived in and around the Valley. Visit the packhorse bridge and medieval ford. Moving forward in time, learn about the gentry who lived in the grand houses at the top of the Valley and how they shaped the area. Take time to explore architectural features of the Victorian Pleasure Garden they created. Along the way, identify and learn more about the spectacular trees that flourish in this rural idyll.
This is a must for anyone who shares my love of trees, placed within their historical context.
