Situated less than two miles from Biddulph and only five miles from the centre of the Potteries, Greenway Bank Country Park offers a variety of attractive scenery within its 114 acres. Car parks give easy access to lawns and shrubberies, which in the spring are ablaze with colour from rhododendrons, azaleas and daffodils. Beyond these, extensive areas of quiet woodland around the Serpentine Pool provide the perfect setting for a longer walk.
Staffordshire County Council bought the land in 1973, comprising part of two former country estates. Greenway Bank House was badly decayed and had to be demolished but some of the old outbuildings were renovated and now form an estate yard.
The main car park is in the old kitchen gardens; some of the original fruit trees can still be seen around the walls. An old croquet lawn and tennis court has been utilised for the overflow car park. Grant aid for these acquisitions and improvement works has been provided by the former Countryside Commission (now Natural England||).
The Ranger Office is at the estate yard near the main car park and toilets. Bathing in the pools is unsafe and is not allowed. The fishing is private but day tickets are available. The Visitor Centre is staffed by Voluntary Wardens at the weekend. Admission and parking is free. There are designated car parking spaces and toilets available for people with disabilities.
The Country Park offers a School Visits service. For more information, see our Information for Schools|| pages.
