The Oaks was formerly the home of the Earl of Derby and has a colourful history. The mansion was demolished in the 1950s because it was in very poor repair, but the stables, bakehouse and some of the formal gardens remain. It has become a beautiful open country park with chalk grassland meadows full of wild flowers; mature woodlands, full of birds and a newly refurbished café serving delicious food and drinks. Dogs are allowed in the park, and there is also a dog free children and families' natural play and picnic area. There is a thriving artists' community in the stable block and open days are held twice a year in June/July.
