An Autumn Walk on the Stourhead Estate

Alfred's Tower. Free parking nearby and a great place to start from.

You may know the beauties of Stourhead from walking around the lakes, and admiring the follies, but if you start at Alfred’s Tower there is a wonderful range of walks taking in the grounds and woodland of the Estate. Visiting is free, open to the public and well signposted. It gives us all a great opportunity to enjoy the colours and feel of Autumn at this time of year.

Uprooted trees tell of past storms

These woods are carefully managed and are a rich source of timber from a variety of trees.

The wonderful colours of the Autumn leaves are just as spectacular here as down by the lakes

Every conker on the ground had been opened. Squirrels?
