Thorley Wedge Park & Play Area

Thorley Wedge is a ribbon of open space running from Friedberg Avenue to Thorley Hill. The open space has two play areas (play area is currently closed) - at Sainsburys and at Lower Park Crescent. There are also goals for informal kickabouts and pathways linking to the town centre. 

The Southern Country Park & Beyond 2013 -2018 [5MB] is a five year greenspace action plan for Thorley Wedge and the four nearby parks to guide our plans to create a linked walking route between five parks in Bishop's Stortford.

Bishop's Stortford Parks and Beyond Walks

Explore the south west corner of Bishop's Stortford by following Parks and Beyond circular walks which link together five East Herts Council managed open spaces - Southern Country Park, Northern Parkland, Thorley Wedge, Bishop's Park and The Firs.
