Tottenham House and Savernake Forest, Savernake / Burbage / Great Bedwyn / Little Bedwyn / Marlborough / Mildenhall - Wiltshire (UA)

Extensive landscape of rides linking Savernake Forest with ornamental parkland and pleasure grounds around the house. Exemplifies the work of Burlington, Brown, Cundy and others. Planning permission for hotel development has lapsed. The house and core of the landscape have been sold to a private owner and the process of conservation and repair has begun, allied to major development proposals (application under consideration). The Forestry Commission manages Savernake Forest on a long lease. There is a Natural England Stewardship Scheme over part of the park.
