Sometimes, whilst out and about in Buckinghamshire, we discover somewhere extraordinary.
By chance we met a representative of Little Chalfont Nature Park and the rest, as they say, is history.
We popped over to Little Chalfont to visit the Craft and Farmer’s Market which is held on the second Saturday of every month. Having purchased some lovely handmade soap (followers of my “Let’s all do our bit” page will understand) we browsed the Farmer’s Market stalls tasting pies, cheese and gin (well it would have been rude not to).
Amongst the food producers was a stall for Little Chalfont Nature Park; the park was literally one minute’s walk away. We had never heard of this community space so we wandered over to investigate.
Well, sometimes we discover a place that makes our heart sing, a place so peaceful and so natural we just have to share it with you. This park is the perfect place. Managed by Little Chalfont Parish Council in conjunction with Little Chalfont Nature Park Management Group it is English countryside at it’s very best. Through community fundraising a small piece of land that is hidden away has become an oasis of wildlife where your imagination (and your children) can run wild. Please note that dogs are NOT allowed.
Visit the natural climbing frame, look for the red kite high up in her nest, check out the baby badger poking his head out and mind you don’t trip on the strawberry. Don’t understand what we’re talking about? Visit Little Chalfont Nature Park and all will be revealed. The park is open all year round during daylight hours.
They are currently fundraising for the path to be made more substantial for wheelchair access and also as the perfect training ground for your little ones to learn to ride their bikes. If you would like to donate please visit www.naturepark.littlechalfont.org.uk for further information.
