Dunorlan Park – Tunbridge Wells

Pembury Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN2 3QN

Dunorlan Park, with it’s spacious and elegant landscaping combined with wild grassy slopes and magnificent views across the lake to the Weald, is an historically important and much-loved public park in Tunbridge Wells.

The planting area for CPP is next to the park cafe. Each of the plant species will have around 1 square metre to ensure a large enough area for collecting accurate data on the insects. 

The wooden bedding boxes were constructed and planted with the help of some enthusiastic volunteers.
