Woodlands, ponds and wildflower meadows are now well-established on a site that was once dominated by brickworks and ironworks.  In summer the grasslands and wetlands are alive with butterflies, damselflies and dragonflies, but the Forest Park can be enjoyed throughout the year thanks to an excellent network of all-weather paths. 

The peace and tranquility that can be found at Stillington Forest Park today could not be more different from the industry that dominated the site for more than a hundred years. Iron production began in Stillington around 1865, with the majority of the waste from this industry being dumped at what is now the northern end of the Forest Park. From 1914 until the 1970’s the same material was excavated from the site to be recycled into various products including road surfacing and insulation material.

From the Forest Park you can explore the wider countryside around Stillington using the excellent network of rights of way. 



The Forest Park is located on the northern edge of Stillington.  The main access is via a pathway leading from Lowson Street, adjacent to St John’s Church.
