Conyngham Hall Grounds, Knaresborough

Conyngham Hall is surrounded by an area of open parkland offering leisure activities, woodland and riverside walks.

The open grassland is enhanced by mature trees amid a number of seasonal bedding, herbaceous and shrub beds. Woodland areas close to the River Nidd provide a variety of nature walks and are ideal for spotting local wildlife.

Woodland walk

Yorkshire Driftwood, which offers support and creative development opportunities to young people with disabilities, has created a series of beautiful wooden sculptures in the woodland close to Bond End. There are a series of sculptures, on the theme of "along the riverbank", inspired by the book The Wind in the Willows. In all, more than 250 people worked on the project, from volunteers to artists.
