Brickfields Country Park
The Friends of Brickfields Country Park were formed in 1992 by a group of local residents wanting to become involved the furtherance of a local amenity. The group are all volunteers and operate under license from Rushmoor Borough Council as part of the Parks Department, performing varied conservation related tasks from litter picking, through habitat creation and regular maintenance to building new paths. We are associated to Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership which links us to other conservation groups nation–wide for training, and advice.
The park is used on a regular basis by local schools for nature studies and is open everyday of the year, so please help us to keep the park tidy. Please take your litter home, do not light fires, and PLEASE do not fish in the pond.
Situated off Boxalls Lane, in Aldershot, Hampshire, is probably one of the British Isles smallest and least known country parks. (Unless you know of another one under 8 acres!) Reclaimed from the remains of a Victorian brickworks and clay diggings, Brickfields Country Park is a peaceful, natural park, known only by local residents and a few in the know - and now you!
Please roam around our website, you will find links to similar organisations as ourselves, along with their E-mail addresses, contact names and some handy phone numbers and web urls. There is a description of the park, its history, how to find it and forthcoming dates for The Friends and the Park.
