Trosley Country Park

In Kent lies a 160-acre woodland walking area, rich in wildlife and panoramic views. Once part of Trosley Towers Estate, the park covers 160 acres woodland and chalk downland, which is rich in wildlife. Animals have been re-introduced to the park to graze the chalk grasslands which support many rare and important plants and animals, such as the chalkhill blue butterfly and the musk orchid. There are two walks within the park: an easy-access trail through the woodland or the more adventurous can try the walk on the downland, which gives panoramic views across the Weald from the steep grass slopes.

Located in a little village in Kent called Vigo. There are no shops nearby, but you may pass some in the car on the way, depending which way you enter. One side of the park is on the edge of a residential area, so I made use of this and took some shots of this area too.

If you love nature, trees, and calmness then Trosley Country Park is the place to be. Its beautiful woodland has a few different walks you can take, some down hills, some up hills, but surrounded by beautiful scenes and wildlife. It has free entry (a fee for parking) and a visitors centre with refreshments when needed; events for children during the summer, and also activity benches along the walking routes with challenges.

Especially beautiful at dusk, you can capture the shadows of all the trees and the variety of colours in the sky as the sun is setting.

Beautiful pathways, with gaps in the trees to a wonderful view across Kent.

If you’re planning to use the Spinner 360, I would defiantly use it with more light next time, and not just as the sun is setting, but it still has beautiful colours!
