Weald Country Park

Weald Country Park is a well-used park on the edge of Brentwood. At over 200 hectares in size, it supports important areas of wood-pasture and acid grassland habitat and is designated as a Local Wildlife Site (LoWS) due to the presence of numerous veteran trees and a number of notable plants and insects.

Our Red Poll herd graze at low density all year round in the 'Old Park' and during winter in the 'Roughs' as part of a Higher Level Stewardship scheme.
