I finally got up there today with the kids. It would be nice if the information sign had a bit more history on it, so will have to start looking stuff up to answer all the questions the kids had.

Don't worry, I know how muddy it is, I regularly walk my dog up there near the Orchard Car Park.....

It is at the eastern edge of the park, farthest away from the fishing lake.

Just a warning, some of the paths are still muddy.

Forgive my ignorance, but where are the ruins at Capstone?

Liney,

If you do a search of City Ark, you'll find nearly 400 references to the history of the manor including this place - enough to satisfy anyone's curiosity!

Hi

I actually got round to walking out to see these ruins in Capstone Park today.  I'd like to know a bit more about them, if anyone has any information and would love to see a picture.

Does anyone know if the actual farm house was where the remains are? The board only mentions the remains of a barn and animal stables.

Can anyone tell me when it stopped being used.

Thanks in advance.
