Cosmeston

Created on the site of a disused quarry, Cosmeston Lake and Country Park has a variety of habitats covering over 100 hectares of land and water, some of which are designated ‘Sites of Special Scientific Interest’ which work to protect the rare and diverse plant and animal species. Cosmeston offers a fine introduction to the countryside and is open all year round. The park has been designed to enable people of all abilities to discover and enjoy the countryside.

The Park is also home to Cosmeston Medieval Village, a Heritage Project unique in Britain. The 14th Century village has been reconstructed on its original site and consists of medieval buildings, gardens, rare breeds and a small museum. Tours of the village are led by costumed villagers. Special events take place throughout the year (Click here for more information) such as jousting, medieval combat, archery, crafts, Halloween events and Summer Festivals.
