Due to the national lockdown, the Anglo-Saxon village is closed until further notice. West Stow Country Park, the adventure playground, car park and toilets will remain open daily (9am to 4pm).
|Warning: Due to recent heavy rain, the river path through the country park is flooded and blocked off to all walkers. Please also take care around the lake as paths can become flooded there too.|
For wildlife enthusiasts there are two bird hides and a bird feeding area as well as a lake and the River Lark with all the life that this attracts.
Please note that between 1 March and 31 July, all dogs must be kept on a lead throughout the country park to protect ground nesting birds.
Perfect for picnics on sunny days , energetic winter walks or an evening stroll. The park also boasts an adventure playground for children, this is an ideal family destination. Dogs are welcome in the country park, provided they are kept on a lead. Cycling is not permitted across the heath, around the lake or along the river.
Please be aware that dogs are not allowed in the Anglo-Saxon village, Museum or visitor centre, with the exception of assistance dogs, due to the presence of livestock and the archaeological nature of the site.
There is also food and drink available as takeaway from the café next to the main car park, along with toilet facilities.
