Accessibility

Rougham Estate walks have been designed to be used by able bodied walkers; they are often on uneven terrain, with stiles and tracks through woods. Increasing levels of physical impairment will make these walks increasingly inaccessible.
For those using self-propelled wheelchairs unexpected blockages such as fallen trees and branches can rapidly render a route impassible. The Rougham Estate does its best to keep routes clear but cannot guarantee that any path is fully accessible at any time.

Please see the individual walks for more detail, where you can find maps and detailed descriptions of the walks. We are in the process of adding photos and videos to help you further assess the terrain.

Parking

There is plenty of free parking available at Blackthorpe Barn.

Don’t get locked in! The car parks close when the Roots Café and Shop close and the entrance gates are locked after this time.
