Nr Wetley Rocks,
Stoke on Trent,
Part of Consall Nature Park is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and here the emphasis is on nature conservation, whilst at the same time welcoming the public to enjoy the paths, fishing and picnic facilities.
The Visitor Centre provides displays and exhibitions on the varied and dramatic past of the valley and its present natural history interests. There is a small shop area, selling leaflets and souvenirs throughout the summer (April - September). Toilet facilities are provided all year round and there is easy access to facilities for the less agile. There are designated car parking spaces and toilets available for people with disabilities.

This is a Nature Park in a remote rural setting and whilst every effort has been made to give good access in high use areas such as the Visitor Centre there are inevitably areas of the wider park that due to topography and ground conditions are unsuitable for wheelchair access or for people with impaired mobility.
