There has been a park here since at least 1279. In the Middle Ages a Park would have essentially been a game reserve - an area in which deer were kept to provide sport and meat.
Now the Angmering Park Estate manages the land for forestry, shooting, agriculture and wildlife. In addition the park is home to a Stud Farm and an internationally known racing yard. One of the more unusual animals that can be found grazing in the paddocks are Highland Cattle. Special enclosures, that extend into the woodland, have been built in order to protect these creatures from the hot summer sunshine.
This walk from Angmering explores the grounds of the Angmering Park Estate, a short distance north of the village centre. By starting at The Dover car park (grid reference TQ060064, post code BN18 9PX) rather than from the village the trail can be reduced to 3.1 miles or 5 kms.
