Nestling amongst the partially wooded slopes and meadows that rise beyond the deer park at the rear of Hagley Hall is one of our region's best kept secrets.
Originally pre-dating the Palladian mansion itself, George Lyttelton’s eighteenth century park was in its day considered amongst the greatest of all English landscape gardens, its celebrated beauty drawing praise from some of the century’s most enlightened minds. Today, after almost a century and a half of neglect, a major restoration, part-funded by English Heritage, Natural England and the Hagley Hall Estate (now well underway), is intent on reinstating the park’s former glories, halting its decline and preventing the park joining that long list of historic estates whose former prestige, grandeur and cultural importance are now sadly forever lost to us.
Hagley Park is currently under construction and is not open to the public. Further information will follow in due course.
