PUNK princess Toyah Willcox has named Croome Park, near Pershore, as her favourite place to walk.

The actress and singer, who lives in Pershore, named the historic landscape park as her top spot as its owners the National Trust launched a nationwide search to discover the country’s Ten Greatest British Walks.

She said: “Croome Park is just absolutely stunning.

“It’s designed yet you think you’re in natural countryside. You look out across these gentle rolling hills and you see wonderful monuments, follies and statues and the lake in particular is really lovely.”

National Trust is also holding more than 3,000 walking events at its properties between now and early November. For more details visit nationaltrust.org.uk/midlandsautumn.
