History and wildlife:

Brandon Country Park was originally a country house, created by Edward Bliss, with extensive parkland. Edward made his fortune in the Napoleonic Wars, providing flint to the British army. He and later owners planted hundreds of trees on the estate, including magnificent Giant Redwoods, Monterey Pines and Blue Cedars.

The park is a haven for wildlife. In spring, hundreds of toads breed in the lake. Dragonflies and damselflies dart and skim across the water in the summer sunlight. Autumn is full of magical fungi. Winter is blissfully serene.

The walled garden, once the vegetable garden for the country house, is full of ornamental plants, herbs and bird feeders. It's the perfect place for a family picnic.
