Walk description:

From the A412 follow the brown tourist signs to Langley Park. The full address is Langley Park Country Park, Billet Lane, Iver Heath, Iver, Bucks.

Langley is a historic parkland of 130 acres of important wildlife habitats, including woodland, heathland, wetland and grassland. It's a place to go and relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity.

Maps are provided at the park should you want one. We found that this gave us a general idea of where we were, but it was much more fun to simply explore!

The Temple Gardens have gravel paths throughout and are accessible to all pushchair/buggy and wheelchair users. The gardens contain a range of trees and plant life, most interesting are the Yew Trees, believed to be over 800 years old. The gardens are an excellent place to play hide and seek for older children.

There are several gravel and tarmac paths/drives in the park which take you across the heath land and down to the privately owned manor house. Note that there are a few minor slopes to navigate when walking back up from the manor house.

Additional notes:

There is car parking available with a charge of �2.50. This goes towards the upkeep of the park and there is no admission charge. You can also use the ticket to park in and explore the neighboring Black Country Park!

As of late 2010 - Langley Country Park Heritage Lottery Restoration Project has now been completed, with restored pathways, new benches, new Tea Rooms (run by San Remo Catering, who run the Cafe in Black Park), new toilets including disabled and nappy change facilities.

The park opens from 8.15am each day until dusk, please check the times if you are considering a visit later in the day. The park is open 365 days a year.

In September 2008 there was a great deal of restoration work taking place, which we believe is due to a Lottery Grant awarded in 2007. Also note that the main toilet block was locked and there was only the use of portaloos. These would not have been accessible for those in a wheelchair.

There are benches throughout the park which are ideal for enjoying the views or stopping for refreshments.

Dogs are welcome and bins are provided for disposing of waste.
