    Sandringham Country Park
    In 1968 an area of 142 hectares (350 acres) of The Queen's private Estate at Sandringham was designated as a Country Park.

    It has subsequently been enlarged so that today nearly 243 hectares (600 acres) are available for visitors to enjoy.

    There are two waymarked Nature Trails; one being 1½ and the other 2½ miles long. Also numerous paths in the woodlands to explore.

    There is no charge to enjoy the Country Park, which is open every day to the public and car parking is free.

    The Sandringham Estate lies within the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and runs from the marshland on the Wash over a strip of greensand, running North and South up the chalkland which comprises the central part of East Anglia. The Country Park area is situated on the greensand strip which has layers of carrstone, clay and sand at the surface, giving coarse sandy, free draining and infertile soils.

    Up until about 100 years ago most of the Country Park area was open heathland and grassland, with a few clumps of trees struggling to survive the coastal winds and hordes of rabbits.

    All this has gradually been changed by fencing, draining, planting of trees and a reduction in the number of rabbits. Today whether you visit the Country Park in May/June when the Rhododendrons are in bloom; in the Autumn when the woods are bright with colour and the ground covered with acorns and chestnuts; or in the Winter when the hoar frost may make the Birch trees gleam white against a darkening sky, you will find yourself in a living landscape.
