Calderstones Park


Calderstones Park is not just another pretty looking park. It's home to ancient megaliths that are said to be older than Stonehenge, this is in fact what the park is named after.

And that's not all, within Calderstones Park visiors will also find the extraordinary Allerton Oak, also known as the Law Oak. It is claimed that 1000 years ago the Hundred Court sat under its spreading branches - the trunk is now hollow and its branches supported by stakes.

Calderstones incorporates the Harthill Botanical Gardens, founded in 1802. Almost 4000 species of plants are on show, brought from all over the world by merchants and other travellers.

The park also features a lake, where youngsters can feed the geese and ducks rice balls! There's also Mansion House, which features a café and a child-friendly play area.

    Nice space just to escape the roads and get back in touch with nature. Kids can see the ducks burn some energy in the swing park. Maybe one too many kids kicking balls on the grass I think a... Read full review
