Bignor Park, West Sussex

ACTA prepared a parkland plan for Higher Level Stewardship which helped re-define the structure of the landscape as it was in Gilpin's time. Several special projects were undertaken, including renewal of the pleasure ground boundaries and preparation of a strategy for restoring wooded heath, ancient woodland and the historic vegetation pattern where the park abuts a heathland SSSI.


An unusually detailed tithe map was prepared about 18 years after Gilpin completed his work. It was possible to identify the changes that he may have made from analysis of the map and a detailed understanding of the site.




Much of the original planting survives.
