About Barnwell Country Park

Barnwell has much to offer the visitor which includes nature trails, waterside walks, bird hides, visitor centre, ice cream parlour and picnic and barbecue areas. The large woodland play area is a favourite with children of all ages while the fishing lakes attract anglers from all over the country. To follow the half-mile nature trail on accessible stone paths, follow the red route and look out for the numbered nature trail way markers on posts, benches and fences.

Viewable from the deck of the Kingfisher Cafe is an artificial nest bank for Kingfishers. We are hoping this will enable kingfishers to breed in the park once again. This dazzling bird needs vertical banks in which to dig nesting tunnels that are safe from predators such as mink and grass snakes. The interpretation panels by the cafe will tell you more about the kingfisher and the park’s history and wildlife.
