Chillingham Park


Chillingham Park, the extensive grounds of Chillingham Castle, was designed by Capability Brown in 1752. It includes ornamental oak woodlands set amongst grassland (wood pasture), modelled on how Britain was perceived to have appeared in medieval times. The Park includes ancient old alder trees, thought to be 500 - 600 years old, along the streams and watercourses. The Park is home to the Wild Cattle of Chillingham. The Chillingham Wind Cattle Association purchased the Park in 2005.[1]
