Visitor Centre


The Visitor Centre; we hope this website offers something like a virtual visitor centre since the Friends were asked to vacate the mansion room by RJK Properties.

The visitor centre was closed on the 8th March 2020 as the room has to be vacated by mid March before Covid lockdown began and unconnected with it.
The Visitor Centre has been run by the Friends since 1995 and been in the Mansion since 2000. The centre was run voluntarily and has been the only interpretation and awareness facility for park visitors during that time.
The Friends have, as well as running the visitor centre, organized a program of walks and events, carried out conservation work and maintained the Sensory Garden. We have facilitated fund raising for the Sensory Garden (about 25,000), a Nature Trail and park signage.
Most recently about 50,000 has been raised for restoration of the Ancient Pond and installation of a path and pond dipping platform.
Thank you to all our visitors, members and volunteers who have enabled the Visitor Centre over the past years and hope we can find a way to continue into the future.

The Centre was run by Friends of BPP unpaid volunteers and was situated in the ground floor of the Mansion.
