Learn about the biodiversity, wildlife, cultural and built heritage of the historic former estate and its mature woodland and lake on this guided walk around Loughgall Country Park Ecotrail
See a range of exciting sites along the way starting with the famous crannog in the lake which has links with early Christian Knights who famously granted Armagh to St Patrick. Keep an eye out for nesting birds in the many bird boxes that can be found on a variety of tress along the walk including fine specimens of oak and beech. As the guide takes you further along the trail you will pass the lakeside cottage with its colony of bats before exploring the walled garden of the old estate- now owned by the Armagh Heritage Orchard Trust who pride themselves on preserving old types of apple. Nearing the end of the trail you will pass the manor house- once the home of the Cope family who settled there in the 17th Century and the village graveyard.
