Park Photos

As autumn gives way to winter here are a few autumnal photos taken around the park in early November.

If you have any photos of interest to park visitors please do send them to us for display here.

Some pictures taken on a recent walk across the western side of the park. It’s currently closed to the public, but the friends group leads guided walks that take in the western half of the park, usually monthly. Contact us to book a place, the walk also includes a visit to the Great Oak.

Public Access Rights

From 1st January 2018 mineral extraction has finished on the Panshanger Estate.

This means the full Country Park is now open. This public amenity for Hertfordshire is a legal obligation, in perpetuity, on the landowners. As granted by the Secretary of  State for Environment in 1980 in exchange for valuable mineral extraction rights.

See Country Park Access Map on home page to see areas you should now feel free to enter and enjoy.

Fences or locked gates restricting access to Country Park areas are not legal obstructions to public access.

Who we are

Friends of Panshanger Park formed in 2013 to represent groups & individuals disappointed by years of delay in the opening up of the full Country Park at Panshanger. The Panshanger estate owners were granted mineral extraction rights in following a Public Inquiry. The resulting legal agreement obliged the owners to return a restored Country Park with a wide range of facilities to the people of Hertfordshire.
