Ampthill TV videos of Ampthill Park

A new video was added to Ampthill TV yesterday about the reintroduction of Dexter Cattle to Ampthill Park. In an interview, Park Development Manager Gary Quilter explains the reasons behind the reintroduction.

There are many other videos about activities in the park to be found on Ampthill TV. Festival Gala Days, Fireworks Nights, AmpRocks, Proms in the Park, Mayday Morris Dancing, Pentecost Celebrations and a 1930 Bedfordshire Show attended by the Prince of Wales.

Thanks for the video - good to get the background on the introduction of the cattle. It would be nice to know exactly where the area is - can you post a map as as is said in the video it is a relatively small area in what is a large area of parkland?

The area is along the low ground at the northern boundary of the park just behind the ressy.

Looking down on Park Farm.

There are four kissing gates to enter the area.

Wonderful yesterday to see the Dexter cattle for the first time. Their prescence adds much to the joys of Ampthill Park.

Proves that the town council can be very positive in its purpose.

The Dexters are looking very much at home in the Park.

Image

Image

They seem to be very placid . . . .
Image

. . . . . quite friendly . . . .
Image

. . . . not say inquisitive . . . .
Image

There were a lot of fast moving squirrels about too . . .
Image

. . . . and many small birds, but it was really too grey to catch them.
I thought this Jackdaw looked handsome though.
Image

Three times, very bright Green Woodpeckers erupted from the bushes ahead of me as I walked, but I was just too slow to catch them. I think I need a portable hide . . . . :P

I was pondering over this today, as I saw the farmer taking the feed to the cattle at the end of the park, and wondered why they hadn't got a farmer involved in this? Or maybe they have I just missed it?

Is this supposed to be a no cost scheme?
