Julien back in the 18th century swimming pool!

Good news – Julie has donned her fabulous bathing cap again and is back in the pool!

You will recall that leaks and yet more leaks meant that the fabulous 18th century pool that forms a centrepiece of the gardens needed a lot of work to make it watertight.

The repairs are now complete; it’s full of water and all those frogs can get back to where they belong. You can watch Julie re-enter the water aided and abetted by Luke on dry land, on one of the coldest spring days we can remember! It’s thanks to our Patrons that we were able to restore the pool – we couldn’t have done it without them!

There’s no better way to discover the estate here at Mapperton than by joining one of our wonderful Mapperton Wildlands tours. 

There’s lot’s coming up in the next few months including on Sunday the 8th of May and the 29th May we’ll be out bright and early on our Dawn Chorus at Mapperton. We will hear the wonderful array of bird song that rings out across the marshes, meadows, scrubland and woodlands of Coltleigh in the spring. We can expect to hear 30 or more species on our morning walk including various tits, warblers, doves, thrushes, and finches. 

You can also join us at the beginning of our rewilding journey at Mapperton and take our Introduction to Rewilding at Mapperton tour on Sunday the 15th of May. During this morning walk we will describe the project work underway and explore an extensive area of grassland, marsh and scrub at the very beginning of this journey.  We will also track down the magnificent herd of White Park cattle, one of England oldest native breeds.
