Hatfield Forest is holding an open day to celebrate its 90th year of being open to the public.

The 1,049 acres (4.245 km²) of woodland, wood pasture, lake and marshland was first open to visitors on May 10, 1924.

Today, the ancient royal hunting forest provides an excellent location for walks, picnics and birdwatching.

National Trust, which owns the forest, are waiving car parking fees on May 10 and will have on display information about the history and ecology of the Forest and free guided walks over the whole weekend.

Hatfield Forest is open to vehicles 9am to 5pm on May 10 and May 11 with free parking on the Saturday. Car parking for non-members is £5 on the Sunday, with free pedestrian access and free year round parking for National Trust members.
