About the visit and getting there
Allestree Park is the largest open public space in Derby and covers 130 hectares. It bridges the gap between the built environment and green countryside on the northern edge of the city.
There are toilet facilities available. Please wear clothes suitable for all weathers, including sensible footwear, as part of the visit will take us over stone tracks and muddy ground.
We will meet in the main car park off the A6 Duffield Road/Burley Hill. Parking is free. Free parking is also available at the Woodlands Road car park, which is a short walk to the meeting point.
The nearest railway stations to the park are at Duffield (2.3 miles), Derby (4.5 miles) and Belper (5 miles) from where you can catch buses that stop near the park gates. Buses stop near the park gates in Duffield Road.
