Weald Country Park is steeped in history. It was once a deer park and used for hunting by the Abbots of Waltham in around 1063. It has been the site of a great hall with formal gardens and there are even the remains of an Iron Age settlement which dates from the 1st century BC. If you look closely at the shapes and character of Weald's landscape, you will see a pleasantly sculptured land created by people who have lived here over many centuries. Visit the deer, reintroduced to the park in 1987, stroll through 500 acres of parkland, wander round the lakes and discover the Visitor Centre full of lively and interactive displays illustrating the history of the park.
