Inside a hidden gem parkland in Solihull set to be restored after a grant

A large swathe of historically and environmentally significant parkland in Solihull are being restored and made more accessible to the public after a Community Green Grant from the West Midlands Combined Authority’s (WMCA). The 40-acre estate is a hidden gem on Solihull’s border with Birmingham, featuring a Jacobean Hall and 350-year-old Gardens. Not only will the fund help restore it but also help with conservation of an area of protected wetland, dried-up ponds, and rare acid grassland that is receding due to invading species.
