The Short Farming TrailThe shortest trail is the Farming Trail which takes you on a fascinating walk around our park and farmland. Informative signs help you learn all about our crops, livestock, wild life and farming operations. You will also get a look at our yearling stags (spikers).
If you have small children this walk will be a perfect energy burner.
Discovery TrailWalk the Discovery Trail through some of our 329 acres of beautiful Norfolk Countryside. An abundance of wildlife and habitats awaits you; we have Pheasants, Partridges (both English or Grey and the red-legged French) Lapwings, Oyster Catchers. Hares, many Rabbits, together with little birds like the Yellowhammer and Skylark which are now increasing in numbers due to the Field Margins and Hedgerow management techniques we have employed.
If you are a birdwatcher, bring your binoculars to make sure you don't miss any sightings, or if you are a wildlife photographer bring a camera to make sure you don't miss out on some potentially stunning photos.
Archaeological TrailDiscover the rich archaeology of Snettisham Park Farm. Visitors are often surprised to find that our Farm is the site of an important Roman Villa, a Saxon Settlement, the famous St Thomas' Chapel and much more.
Other features, found by English Heritage in their field walking survey of Park Farm in 1989, include a large burial mound to the east of St Thomas' Lane, and a further two settlements, possibly tenants of the main Roman Villa.
The Archaeology leaflet contains detailed facts regarding the fascinating finds that have been made on our Farm. Make sure you obtain this leaflet at reception.
