Park Pale Ancient Monument
The footpath was transferred to the Parish Council from the Civic Society. This is a section of a medieval town boundary known as the “Park Pale” and runs between Chatsworth Drive along the footpath to Ludgate Street. The mound is protected by English heritate and the land should not be disturbed. This is one of three sections of medieval boundary located to the south and west of Tutbury. The civic society received grants to appoint researchers into the history of the monument and have devised the Heritage Walk so the public can enjoy and learn more about it.
The parish council now appoints a contractor to maintain the land and tree surgeons to maintain the safety of the sycamore trees.
