The Rural Estate

The rural estate, to the west of Ferry Meadows Country Park, is located between the River Nene and the villages of Castor, Ailsworth and Sutton, stretching all the way to Wansford.

This area of the Park is steeped in history. Archaelogical excavations have unearthed large numbers of artifacts especially from the Roman settlement of the valley.

The current agricultural landscape is managed with the aim of maintaining the landscape and heritage features of the area.
