Attingham Park is a country house in Shropshiremarker, Englandmarker, which is owned by the National Trust. It is a Grade I listed building.

Location

It is located near to the village of Atchammarker, on the B4380 Shrewsburymarker to Wellingtonmarker road.

History

Attingham Park was designed by George Stewart and was built in 1785 for Lord Berwick on the site of an earlier house built to his own designs by Richard Hill of Hawkstone. Later, John Nash added the picture gallery.

It was the seat of the Barons Berwick until that title became extinct in 1953. The hall at Attingham Park is now the regional headquarters of the National Trust and also on the estate is the Shropshire office of Natural England.

The Estate

The park was landscaped by Humphry Repton and includes woodlands and a deer park, with between 200 and 300 head of Fallow deer (according to season).

The grounds also include walled gardens and an orchard.

The River Ternmarker, which flows through the middle of the park, joins the larger River Severn near the park boundary.
