Brief description of site

Worth Park (formerly known as Milton Mount Gardens) contains formal gardens, a recreational parkland and a lake area which has been recognised as a Site of Nature Conservation Importance.

Brief history of site

The park was originally a medieval deer park and formed part of the Forest of Worth, which stretched from Slaugham in the South to Worth in the North. The Worth Park Estate was purchased by Sir Joseph Montefiore in 1850. Joseph died in 1880 and the house and garden were remodelled by his son Francis Abraham Montefiore.
