Walking route: The Sabbath Walks Trail

Between 1782 and 1792, Quaker and Ironmaster Richard Reynolds levelled and widened existing pathways in these local woodlands. These paths were inspired by visits to Enville Hall near Bridgnorth and the Goldney family garden follies in Bristol. He created one of the UK’s first publicly accessible parks, almost 200 years before National and Country Parks. The walks featured a Doric Temple, cast iron Rotunda and many arbor seats.
