Historic Park, Cheshire

Matthew Wigan Associates was commissioned by The Crown Estate, to undertake a Feasibility Study for an important Listed 18th century house and parkland in Cheshire.

The scope of the study was to assess the unique landscape character of the Park and analyse its potential future use. The park includes several listed buildings and Scheduled Ancient Monuments, as well as extensive areas of protected habitat. 

The challenge was to understand the relative historic and cultural value of the landscape and its ecology and provide design solutions that met the new needs of the estate, whilst respecting the heritage value of the parkland.
