Petworth House

A late 17thc. mansion, rebuilt in 1688 by Charles Seymour, 6th Duke of Somerset, and altered in the 1870s by Anthony Salvin. The site was previously occupied by a fortified manor house founded by Henry de Percy.
The old chapel and undercroft survive.
Within a walled 700 acre landscaped park which was designed by 'Capability' Brown. It is inhabited by the largest herd of fallow deer in England.
The house and deer park were handed over to the nation in 1947 and are now managed by the National Trust.
Leconfield Estates still own much of Petworth and surrounding area.
