We would like to wish Michael Crook a very Happy 80th Birthday, we hope you have a fabulous day!

Michael and his family have held a family picnic at Forty Hall every year for the last 30 years, starting on Michael's 50th Birthday. The idea started because the family didn't want to fall into the habit of just meeting up at Weddings and Funerals, and so the tradition was born!

The record number of family members attending the gathering is 43 people with 3 dogs, and they come from as far away as Newcastle just to attend.

We hope you have many more fun family picnics in the future!

#EnfieldArchaeologicalSociety are back at #FortyHall doing their annual dig of #ElsyngPalace.

One of their focusses for this year is to hunt for the Inner Gatehouse of Elsyng Palace. No breakthoughs yet...but there are plenty of other interesting discoveries, which help to keep the diggers' spirits up while they manoeuvre amongst the tree roots!

Enfield Archaeological Society's daily blog keeps us updated of progress throughout the two week dig, check it out here - http://ow.ly/avDL50FZliP

A beautiful early spring day !
Forty Hall Past and Present.
Exercise walk Forty Hall, looks Magnificent any time of the day.
A rather chilly Forty Hall this evening.
One of the most beautiful trees in Enfield. A sight to behold at Forty Hall !
To the brilliant man who so kindly found my phone at dusk on the outer path, while I frantically ran around carrying my 2yo searching for it - THANK YOU SO MUCH! I’d had a terrible day and you restored my happiness. 🙌🙌🙌 Also thank you for being a top human and calling my mum to let her know you’d found it. Merry Christmas ❤️
Lovely winters day.
Hi All, As the restrictions are being lifted and Forty Hall & Estate are now in a position to allow visitors again, I want to share with you some of the beautiful photos I captured of a family’s visit last year. As the weather is now warming up, I personally can’t wait to take my family there again, especially after discovering you can hire bikes to get around the park. Now I don’t have to hear that heart sinking statement “daddy…my legs are tired’. I saw in an earlier post that social distancing was managed really well, which is great to hear. So, if you haven’t been to Forty Hall before, hopefully these photos will encourage you to visit.
