Brief description of site

Pirton Park was previously part of the Croome Court estate. The fallow deer park was landscaped by Capability Brown whilst he worked on Croome. Features include cedars and limes planted in the mid-18th century.

Brief history of site

The park may have been created in the 17th century, and was apparently well established when valued in 1687. The deer park was landscaped by Lancelot Brown in the 1760s, effectively as a satellite of what had become the main park at Croome.
