Farming the Historic Landscape: Caring for Historic Parkland

Historic parks are an integral part of the English countryside, making a unique contribution to its character, its biodiversity and cultural heritage.  This leaflet is principally about country house parks.  Many historic urban parks and other designed landscapes such as cemeteries have drawn inspiration from the aesthetics of the country house park; and many local authority 'country parks' were once former country estates and parklands.

This leaflet has been designed to help farmers, land managers and farm advisers identify historic parkland features and ensure their conservation through appropriate management.
