Cranford Park project

We are working closely with local community groups and other organisations to look at the options for Cranford Park and its future.

We have received an initial grant of £221,100 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Big Lottery. The award will help us seek further funding for a major restoration project at Cranford Park. If successful, this grant will enable essential repairs to Cranford Park's historic buildings and introduce new facilities.

In addition to the restoration, the project plans brand new visitor amenities and improved biodiversity.

The Grade II listed vaulted 16th century cellars of the former house would be repaired and, for the first time ever, made accessible to the public.

This venture will help the park, already rich in history and natural diversity, reach full visitor potential. Essential repairs and conversion of the listed 18th century stable block would provide display space, meeting rooms, and see the rebuilding of a former wing to provide a new visitor cafe and toilets.  Cranford park stables

The long-term project aims to restore the formal landscape to its former glory, incorporating features such as the old ha-ha, ice house and walled garden.

Natural history will not be forgotten, as the biodiversity will be improved with the grazing of cattle and the establishing of a new wetland area.

The design scheme will be developed in liaison with the Cranford Park Friends. This organisation has been working with us for the past few years to help care for the park and host walks and events.  

We have recently been consulting residents and vistors about these proposals. There will other opportunities to comment as plans progress.
