Haddon’s Medieval Park, is recognised as nationally significant, not only for its Medieval heritage but also because of its remarkable diversity of habitats, unaltered landscapes and stretches of ancient pasture.
The Park, which reaches to 187 hectares, includes parkland, woodland, a significant stretch of the Derbyshire River Wye, water meadows, wetlands and former stretches of farmland. Almost half of the park is particularly unusual, as it is land that has not been touched by agricultural systems for at least 900 years, making it of significant scientific and ecological interest.
Haddon’s ecological parkland presentation delves into the evolution of the site, the flora and fauna that have made the park their home, and explores the rich mosaic of habitats that exists within.
