Clandon Park, West Clandon - Guildford

Lancelot Brown designed Clandon's landscape park c1776-81. The house, gutted by a major fire in 2015, and garden are owned by the National Trust while the park is privately owned. Development, uncordinated or inapropriate management and numerous visitor facilities or uses in and around the park have damaged its overall integrity and it is vulnerable to new development proposals. With separate Conservation Plans drawn up for restoration in the house and garden, and management of the park, a co-ordinated appoach to park use and appropriate management is needed to secure this landscape's future.
