Ickworth Park

A 723 ha classic National Trust parkland estate in west Suffolk, with a Mansion in the centre. The habitats include 250 ha of woodland (some ancient, most secondary) and hundreds of mature and veteran trees in the grazed parkland. There are some wetland habitats along the central stream, with its 2 lakes. The 366 ha of grasslands have mostly been agriculturally improved, but some are unimproved, there is some arable land, although most of the parkland is in long term restoration to grassland with trees.
