Brampton Bryan, situated on the A4113 between Leintwardine and Knighton in north west Herefordshire is the home of the Harley Estates. On the 4th of May the Private Park is open for conducted walks. Two walks, the shorter one lasts about 1 hour and is over easier ground, more suited to families with young children. The longer walk takes about 2 hours and involves a short but steepish incline. The views from the top are fascinating. The park is well known for the variety of trees that successive generations of the Harley Family have planted and nurtured, the park has a great variety of Lichens.


Courtesy of Mr and Mrs E Harley, the walks set off from the Parish Hall at 3.00pm and to welcome the walkers at the end of their trek there will be a delicious afternoon tea. The tours are conducted and at various points of the walk some historical or environmental points are made. Even if you have been before, the walks are enjoyable and interesting. The trees in their springtime foliage, bluebells perhaps and other wild flowers. The walks cost £5 which covers the afternoon tea and proceeds go to the cost of maintaining St Barnabas Church in the village. St Barnabas is unlike standard Anglican Churches, built during the English Commonwealth following the civil war during a period of Puritan Theology. You might want to get to Brampton Bryan early to give yourself some time in the Church before the walk.
