dunham massey


Dunham Massey’s deer park covers an area of 192.7 acres and features formal avenues, woodland and parkland. Its pasture-woodland is occupied by a herd of fallow deer that have been resident in the park for hundreds of years.

Part of the Dunham Massey Estate, the park also has a magnificent collection of ancient trees. Many of the giant oak trees dating back as far as the 17th century, a true rarity in Britain today. As such, it is considered a site of national importance.

Dunham Park also has a history of housing rare insects and fungi in its ancient trees, drawing experts from around the world to research since the 1860s.
