Grounds

All the family can enjoy the stunning grounds found at Kirkleatham Museum, with so much to explore, excitement and adventure is guaranteed for children of all ages. The grounds are a haven for those that want to while away the hours relaxing on our lush green lawns with a good book.

Woodland Trails

Within the Museum grounds a woodland trail has been created and benefits from hard surfaced pathways suitable for all visitors to enjoy including those with access problems.

A mini beast habitat area can be found on site along with the construction of a bird hide and bird feeding station.

Maze

We have a newly planted maze within the grounds; the closest maze to us is situated in Durham.

Play Area

The play area has been developed into a bespoke timber framed play area suitable for all ages in a safe and welcoming environment.



Willow Dome

Another addition, and one designed to complement the play area is the construction of a living willow dome, the dome has two extending tunnels each with a small pod at the end. Allowing visitors the opportunity to interact with the natural environment in a unique way.

Nature Garden

The Nature Garden behind the café is being restored, and the raised planters are being turned into sensory beds. A wildflower mix has been sown to create a grassland habitat, and the former pond is being turned into a Bog Garden.
