Mote Park is place very close to my heart. Having grown up on the edge of the park I was quick to adopt it as my ‘Local Patch’, initially introduced by my Grandad who had worked in the park. I have been recording the wildlife and history of the park over the last 15 years.
I lead a range of walks around Mote Park, and talks to local groups about its history and wildlife. Details of both can be found below.
I have also written a book about the park’s fascinating history…
