Ampthill Great Park Teaching Resources

The Greensand Trust is proud to be working in partnership with Ampthill Town Council to look after Ampthill Great Park and other sites around the town. We supported Ampthill Town Council in their successful bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund’s “Parks for People” programme which has resulted in many enhancements to the park and its Capability Brown-designed landscape and getting more people involved. We also help to manage the Friends of Ampthill Great Park Community Volunteer Group and have a team of rangers based onsite.

We have worked together with Ampthill Town Council and Greensand Country to create these new teaching materials designed to help teachers plan a visit to Ampthill Great Park with background information and activities linked to the National Curriculum.

New for 2018

Thanks to funding from the Greensand Country Landscape Partnership we've been able to produce these ten new Fact File educational resources featuring various woodland creatures found in woodlands with the Greensand Country Landscape Project Area - the Greensand Ridge.

These Fact Files can be used to give key facts or a quick overview of some woodland creatures which include: wood ants, woodland beetles, woodland butterflies, brown long-eared bat, hazel dormouse, hedgehog, woodpeckers, tawny owl, fox and badger.
