Lydiard Park is the ancestral home of the Viscounts Bolingbroke, which includes the striking Palladian house, beautiful church, formal parkland and surrounding pasture and a Georgian walled garden, with stunning displays of flowers, fruit trees and topiary. The park is set in 260 acres with wide, accessible paths criss-crossing the site around the lakes, lawns, woodlands and pasture. There is also a huge children's play area suitable for children of all ages. In 2011, Lydiard Park was named as one of the nation's best green spaces and was awarded a Green Flag, along with Green Heritage status.

Much of the walk is within the grounds of the park, but it also ventures further afield to the nearby village of Lydiard Millicent.

Firstly the Sat Nav location takes you to a different car park, one near point 4 on the walk, by the church and the house. Secondly the car parking is no longer free both at the car park above and at the car park mentioned at point one. You can complete the walk starting at point 4. A pleasant flat easy stroll.
