Visitor Centre & Sculpture Trail

Scolton Manor - Visitors Centre

The Visitor Centre, located at the bottom of the park, was constructed in 1993 and demonstrates the use of environmentally-friendly building materials and a range of renewable energy sources.

An adjoining wind turbine, photo-voltaic cells and solar collectors contribute to the Visitor Centre's energy supply. The use of locally sourced timber and other materials, from non-solvent paints to sisal carpeting, all help to reduce the overall environmental ‘footprint' of the structure.


The Visitor Centre contains displays focusing on green issues and the wildlife of the park, as well as changing temporary exhibitions. Toilets and baby changing facilities are also available within the building.
