New Interpretation Board Unveiled

On a sunny February morning 19 visitors enjoyed our 'Easy Access Oak Walk' which included the unveiling of a new interpretation board illustrating the fascinating history of Panshanger House.  Located next to the footprint of the former house, the new board takes viewers on a journey from the start of its construction as the centerpiece of a Humphry Repton landscape in 1806 to its sad demise in the 1950's.

With temporary parking provided the 'Easy Access Oak Walk' takes in in the house site, the orangery and magnificent Panshanger Great Oak, without having to make the long walk from the Thieves Lane car park.

Jennifer Gilbert, Panshanger Park People & Wildlife Officer said: "It was great to see the new interpretation board in place, the park has such a rich history and it is great to be able to share more of this with our visitors"

Michael Charlton, Restoration Manager for Tarmac added: 'At the current time we are only able to provide one public car park at Thieves Lane which we recognise makes it a long walk to the oak and house site. As further parts of the park open in the future, accessibility will improve but in the short term we hope our 'Easy Access Oak Walks' will provide an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the wonders of Panshanger Park."
