Acklington deer park

  • Description

    "Acklington Park was established by license granted to Richard de Horsley. In 1512 it belonged to the Percy family and contained 141 fallow deer. It was formed within a loop of the river Coquet and so was easily enclosed by a fence on one side. The park was well timbered with oak and ash at the end of the 16th century but all the deer had been destroyed by 1616. The medieval boundaries have survived in the form of modern roads and footpaths...."
