Chalfont Park 753

Chalfont St Peter, England, Buckinghamshire, Chiltern

Brief Description

The park originally belonged to a late-18th-century house owned by Charles Churchill. The grounds were developed by Humphry Repton and Samuel Lapidge. A golf course and cricket grounds have taken over the formal park design at Chalfont.

History

The formal park design at Chalfont was created by Capability Brown in 1760. A lake was formed in 1794 together with the construction of a boathouse and icehouse. Chalfont Park underwent changes again in 1836 when a cricket pitch was introduced.
