Biddulph Grange Country Park

Woodland, meadows, a large lake and ponds

A 73 acre site originally part of the larger Biddulph Grange Estate. 

Based on the Victorian theme of landscaped views and natural features Biddulph Grange Country Park offers you chance to explore a historic landscape as laid out by its Victorian and early 20th century creators.

The main pool is an outstanding feature at the centre of the site with a fully restored 1904 stone boat house.

In 2000 the 100 year old hydroelectric scheme was reinstated at the visitor centre providing sustainable power for local use.
