Ravensworth, carriage drives
Gardens Parks and Urban Spaces
There were two carriage drives into the park. The line of the former 18th century carriage drive ran from Watergate Bank and is visible as a linear clearing through the woodland. The other drive is still extant as an access road and links the castle and Trench Hall to Watergate Bank at North Lodge and the castle to Coach Road at South Lodge.The woodland belt runs parallel to this carriage drive and an avenue of yew trees flanks it as it turns north towards the Butter Cross.
