A number of the Foundation’s pathways are designed to be wheelchair friendly and these are marked (WF) in the section below. However certain sections contain inclines and involve walking along the Manor drive and crossing over Priory Lane. We therefore advise that all users take care when using the paths, make use of the numerous rest points available and only travel as far as they feel able. Please note that with the exception of disability support dogs, dogs are not allowed on the Manor Grounds.
Ulverscroft Grange – Woodland Walk, Ulverscroft Manor -
Woodbank Walk (WF)
Woodbank walk runs between the car park at Ulverscroft Grange and the Priory Lane entrance at Ulverscroft Manor. This path is approximately 736 yards long and offers wonderful views across the fields towards Bradgate Park and beyond. Sited along its length are many benches, kindly donated by a number of generous groups and individuals.
As the path enters the third field, on route from the Grange towards the Manor, there is a long incline. Please take care along this stretch and do not continue if you feel the return journey would be too strenuous.
The walk then crosses Priory Lane (please take care at this point) and proceeds a short distance along the Manor drive until veering left into Barclay Lane.
Barclay Lane (WF)
This short path through the trees links the Manor Drive with the Woodland Walk.
Woodland Walk (WF)
The distance along the Woodland Walk and Barclay Lane leading to Ulverscroft Manor is approximately 340 yards, following a route around a small flight pond. There is plenty of opportunity to sit and enjoy the tranquil surroundings here.
Having exited Woodland Walk, there is a short path through the Woodyard. Please note this is currently a working area and the site of the Foundation's proposed Activity Centre building and as such vehicles may be in operation at any time. At the far left hand corner of the wood yard is an inclined walk up to the Manor. Please note this inclined walk is not suitable for wheelchair users due to the steepness of the slope.
Ulverscroft Grange Field Walks
These marked green pathways around the first three fields adjacent to the car park at Ulverscroft Grange welcome well-behaved dogs on leads and their owners. Regretfully these paths are not wheelchair friendly due to the inclines and grass surface but for those who are able they offer wonderful tranquil walks and four benches where you can sit and enjoy the superb scenery and peace and quiet.
We sincerely hope you will make full use of the Foundation’s delightful pathways and enjoy the superb scenery they offer.
The Foundation is a registered charity (no: 803525) and it relies upon donations to help maintain the facilities it offers. There is a collection box situated on Woodbank Walk and contributions towards the on-going work of the Foundation would be gratefully received.
