9 May-20 December 2015 10-4 Rooftop walkway open at Dyrham Park. As part of their big conservation project to replace the leaking roof they are giving us the chance to go up on a fully accessible scaffold walkway and see the work first-hand.
The new rooftop walkway opens on Saturday 9 May and will be open daily until 20 December (subject to weather conditions). The solid walkway, which is 230 metres long, is all on one level and gives great views of the split level roof.
There are two large 7.5 metre viewing platforms looking out over the ancient deer park and the formal West garden with its picturesque ponds and Perry pear orchard. On a clear day, you can see across to Bristol and beyond.
