Dunorlan Park
Dunorlan Park was once the private grounds of a large and very grand mansion owned by the Yorkshire born millionaire, Henry Reed. The garden was laid out in the 1850s and 1860s by the renowned Victorian gardener Robert Marnock. Although the mansion no longer exists, the garden is one of the best preserved examples of Marnock's work. James Pulham also contributed to the park and many of the features are made from Pulhamite. Dunorlan Park is now an historically important (Grade II listed LinkExternal link ) and much loved public park. The Heritage Lottery Fund award of £2.1 million has enabled the restoration of Dunorlan's historic features and improved access into and around the park. The park contains a number of amenities including a cafe, boating lake, putting green, car parks, toilets, as well as rolling Wealden countryside. For a map see LinkExternal link
