Clare Castle Country Park


The park contains the remains of the 13th Century stone castle keep set upon its 70ft high motte overlooking the town, as well as its inner and outer baileys which are ideal areas for recreation and picnics. The inner bailey also contains the former Clare railway station and the goods yard, which operated for over 100 years, with the goods shed now housing displays and a railway goods van on a stretch of track. A 'history trail' reveals the park's secrets to visitors.

A nature trail takes in the River Stour and the Railway Walk, as well as other areas of the park. Walkers may wish to continue along the railway walk from the heart of the park into the wider farming landscape, or take in the Clare Circular Walk through the town. The more hardy walkers may wish to follow the Stour Valley Path, or the Bury to Clare Walk.
