New Management Company for Panshanger Park

Tarmac is pleased to announce that experienced landscape management company, Maydencroft, has been appointed to help manage Panshanger Park from February 2019. Maydencroft will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the park, providing valuable support to Tarmac and Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.

Maydencroft will bring with them a dedicated team, including two rangers and an Estates Manager, to support Tarmac and the Trust with the estate and habitat management at the Park and nature reserve. Maydencroft has a wealth of experience managing country parks and heritage landscapes in Hertfordshire and their multidisciplinary team deliver projects that focus on heritage, public amenity and biodiversity.

Tarmac and the Trust are looking forward to this new phase in Panshanger Park’s rich history. Maydencroft’s experience will complement the long-term partnership of Tarmac and the Trust to help transform Panshanger Park into a fantastic place for visitors and wildlife alike.

Now that mineral extraction is complete at Panshanger Park, and Tarmac is progressing with the final restoration works, Maydencroft will bring their expertise and knowledge to this important final phase of the transition from a operational site into a country park and nature reserve.

Alan Everard, Head of Estates and Geology at Tarmac, said, “I am delighted to welcome Maydencroft to the team at Panshanger Park. Their experience managing historic landscapes in Hertfordshire like Panshanger Park, make them the ideal company for this role. I am sure that their capability, knowledge and dedication will be a great asset to the park.”

Tom Williams, MD at Maydencroft, said, “We are really excited about looking after this remarkable Humphrey Repton designed landscape situated between Welwyn Garden City and Hertford. The 1000 acre site consists of open parkland, woodland, lakes and the river Mimram as well as the remains of the Manor House and Orangery. I am particularly excited about seeing the park grazed by our majestic English Longhorns.”
