Mary Arden’s Farm was the childhood home of William Shakespeare. As well as offering plenty of physical challenge – wonky log ladders, stepping logs, a rope course, wobbly belt, swings and slide – children can enter the multi-levelled play tower and pretend to be queens, knights, peasants or any character their imagination conjures. Who knows what stories our young bards will create?

Arriving at Mary Arden's Farm one is greeted by the shrieks of delighted children playing in our new playground.

Earth Wrights visited us, talked to us about our visitors and our values and designed the perfect playground for our site. Regular visitors make a beeline for it, greeting the donkeys on the way. New visitors delight in discovering it.

I cannot recommend Earth Wrights highly enough. They listen, contemplate to conceptualise; then supply perfection.
