Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

We provide access for all to the local countryside. There is a surfaced path which is approximately 1 mile, which leads to the Victorian walled garden. Wherever possible we have removed steps and stiles to make the site more accessible.

Based at the walled garden is Beyond the Wall. This project provides training and support for children and adults with special educational needs and disabilities.
