Historic Compton Verney parkland to re-open

Leamington Editorial 31st May, 2020 Updated: 31st May, 2020   0

THE HISTORIC grounds of Compton Verney will re-open on Tuesday.

The gates will open on the Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown designed parkland, near Wellesbourne, following the latest Government advice on coronavirus.

With health and safety of visitors and staff a top priority the 120 acre park will only initially open to members, local pass holders and one-off grounds pass holders.

People will be welcome to visit in groups of no larger than six and must maintain social distancing at all times.

Some areas of the park will be closed in accordance with guidelines, including the play area, sand pits and bird hide.

CEO-director Julie Finch said: “We are delighted the Government has said it is safe to reopen our grounds at Compton Verney as it’s an established fact that spending time outside in green open spaces surrounded by nature has an immensely positive effect on our health.

“We have 120 acres at Compton Verney, with our wildflower meadows just coming into beautiful bloom, so plenty of space to maintain social distancing. We look forward to welcoming our visitors safely back and to bringing the joy of nature back into people’s lives, which for so many right now will be a much needed tonic.”
