Conserving and enhancing opportunities for wildlife to flourish is at the heart of everything we do at Bishop’s Park. Both our buildings and parkland are home to many different species – and through our work we are monitoring what we have and how they make the site their home, noting any changes over the seasons, and maximising opportunities for them to flourish. From otters, bats, slowworms, eels, swans and kingfishers – it’s fascinating to find out who lives in the Park!


The Bishops Park and Gardens is brimming with history.  From the ancient trees which have stood watch here for centuries, to the walled garden which provided exotic food and flowers for the bishop’s table, to the oxbow lake and the shifting landscape of the Tywi Valley flood plain, to the medieval bishops palace which the Park surrounds and the people that lived and worked here.


Horticulture is a key aspect of our heritage at the Bishop’s Park, and a major part of our ongoing restoration. In unearthing the site’s gardening past we aim to understand how the historic methods and techniques of yesteryear can be used to inform a more sustainable future, both for the people and for the wildlife that share this unique and special place.
