Consall Nature Park

Consall Nature Park

Consall Nature Park is situated within the beautiful valley of the River Churnet. It was opened in 1989.

Part of the park is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and here the emphasis is on nature conservation, whilst at the same time welcoming the public to enjoy the paths, fishing and picnic facilities.

The Visitor Centre provides displays and exhibitions on the varied and dramatic past of the Churnet Valley and its present natural history interests. There is a small shop area, selling leaflets and souvenirs throughout the summer (April - September). Toilet facilities are provided all year round and there is easy access to facilities for the less agile.

If you are unsure of where to walk, try the Consall Nature Park Trails, a series of waymarked walks starting from the Visitor Centre.

The Green walk is approximately one mile and would take approximately half an hour to complete. The route takes you around the ponds of the Nature Park and offers views of dippers and the occasional kingfisher, amongst other flora and fauna.

The Red Walk is approximately three miles in length and would take approximately one and a half hours to complete. Stout footwear is recommended for this route as steep gradients are encountered through some of the woodland.

The White Walk is approximately five miles long and would take approximately two hours to complete. Again, stout footwear is recommended for this route as steep gradients are encountered.

The Purple Walk is an extension of the White Walk and adds an extra half mile, or half an hour to the walk. This walk is not for the faint hearted as steep gradients are encountered but the reward of the spectacular views of the Churnet Valley makes the effort worthwhile.

The Nature Park is particularly suited for School Visits and the Visitor Centre has been designed with such parties in mind.
