Shrubland Park Overview

A private estate NW of Ipswich and featuring a long ridge covered by working mixed woodland to north, some formal gardens in the centre and an area of open parkland to south, all with a good path network and contour features.

 

Many events have been staged in Shrubland Park in the past, but a change in ownership has left access in jeopardy and mineral workings along the ridge have virtually cut the wooded area in two. Sadly, an imminent return to the area is not especially likely.
