Dick Whittington Park and Hidden Valley is a family owned business. Senior family member Chris Turney has run a farming enterprise for many years.
Since the Park opened to the public in 2001 it has seen a transformation from pure agriculture to an environmental haven.
The Bells of St. Mary-le-Bow Church, Cheapside, London rang out and told young Dick Whittington to ‘tum again, tum again Whittington -thrice Mayor of London”.
Hidden Valley is part of the Blakemore Park Estate in West Gloucestershire set in a landscape of hillside pasture & ancient woodland.
Richard Whittington was born the third son of William and Joan Whittington, Lord and Lady of Pauntly, around 1358 in Gloucester. When he was 13 he was sent to London to be apprenticed to John Fitzaren.
