Park in the Past



“Who can see the green earth any more, as she was by the sources of Time? Who imagines her fields as they lay, in the sunshine, unworn by the plough?” M. Arnold.

A visit to the Park in the Past: is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with the natural world in so many different ways, as the whole site has gone from being a derelict, unloved place, to an ecological success story! Visitors can explore 120 acres of natural beauty, which include woodlands, wetlands, open fields and a magnificent 35 acre lake. It is also home to the UK’s only full size replica 1st Century AD Roman Fort, and is a totally unique project that is constantly evolving, and expanding. Set between the villages of Hope and Caergwrle in Flintshire, this exciting, and innovative heritage and conservation project allows visitors to return to a time when the Romans occupied North Wales. There’s a delightful choice of activities set within the breathtaking, ancient Welsh landscape, which includes swimming, SUP, and kayaking which can be enjoyed on the crystal-clean lake, and what could be more blissful than a swim as the sun sets.
