Planting plays an important role in the playground. Herbs & fruiting trees and shrubs are used, also sensory plants with good smell and feel. The locally sourced rocks make good stepping stones.

New playground on the site of the 12th century manor house, now a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Working closely with English Heritage (now Historic England) we secured Scheduled Monument Consent for the playground. The design of this climbing structure was informed by the archaeology on the site and medieval barn architecture.
A new rope & timber bridge over the 12th century moat. The moat was cleared out by volunteers and is now a feature of the play area.
New zip wire and climbing structure on the 12th century moated site
The play area incorporates existing trees and woodland.
Fallen trees were retained and used as natural play equipment. Much of this was created by the volunteers at Cogges.
