City of Wolverhampton Council Director of Regeneration, Richard Lawrence, said: “Bantock Park and The Courtyard Café have been very popular during the last 12 months and I am delighted that the house and the pitch and putt will be available to the public again from next week.

“The house and grounds are an asset to the city and are set in a lovely location within Bantock Park. Visitors can find out more about the Bantock family and the manufacturing history of Wolverhampton.

“In line with the Government guidance a number of social distancing measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of staff and visitors as safety is of upmost importance.

“I do hope residents will take this opportunity to indulge in art again, explore the collection and historical items we have on show and even take a stroll around the park.”

A number of social distancing measures have been put in place. These include social distancing measures and track and trace, as required by the NHS. Face coverings will need to be worn whilst in the area and sanitisation stations will be available.
