History and wildlife:

Brandon Country Park was originally a country house with extensive parkland. It is not difficult to imagine Edwardian ladies and gentlemen walking on the lawns by the lake.

It is now managed for wildlife. In spring, hundreds of toads breed in the lake. Dragonflies and damselflies dart and skim across the water in the summer sunlight. From the lake, you also get clear views of the house, now a private nursing home.

The walled garden used to be the vegetable garden for the country house. It has been lovingly restored with ornamental plants, to stimulate all the senses. There will be some restoration work to the walls, thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Under the apple and fruit blossom in the orchard is one ideal location to have your lunch.

Brandon Country Park is managed as a partnership between Suffolk County Council and Forest Heath District Council.
