WALKS Petworth Park 2017

Lagotto Walk -
Petworth Park, West Sussex
Sunday, 5 May

We are returning to the stunning Petworth Park for the third year running. 

We will walk for around an hour and a half – from the car park down to the Big Pond, and back via a different route. Please note there are deer on our route (as well as the Big and Little Ponds!), so dogs will need to be under control or on a lead.

Afterwards, we’ll head off to a local pub for a spot of lunch.


Timing TBC

Please let one of us know if you are coming. Also let us know if you are wishing to stay for lunch so that we can plan for the right numbers:

Meet at the North Car Park. There is a £4 car park charge (free to National Trust members)
