Tarmac to open up 4.7km of new paths and the Mimram Valley path

We are pleased to announce the opening of 4.7km of new paths at Panshanger Park to improve access from the south of the park and provide access to the Cole Green historic landscape. 

The Mimram Valley path will also be opened to provide an additional east-west permissive route in the park through the lower valley to the south of the River Mimram. 

All paths are planned to open on Monday 24th June.

Prior to the opening of the Mimram Valley path, we will complete the new fencing that will protect the River Mimram and we will provide an area for the longhorn cattle and their calves to acclimatise to the park before they enter fields that are open to the public.

As the Mimram Valley path is located within the nature reserve, we have been working closely with our stakeholders to find a sensitive solution that enables the public to enjoy the route, whilst protecting the delicate ecology of the River Mimram and preserving the historic value of the park. We will monitor use of the route over the coming months to ensure this is being achieved.

These new paths add to the 18km of paths already open to the public across Panshanger Park.
