Trent Park - Enfield

Late C18 landscape park further developed in the early C20 by Sir Philip Sassoon. Discussions continue with the owner of the mansion house to secure improvements to the core of the historic designed landscape as part of the re-development of the former Middlesex University site, including restoration of the terrace which is also at risk. The Local Authority manages the surrounding parkland as a country park, and discussions continue towards improving the inter-relationship between this and the more formal historic core.
