Knole Park :: TQ5454
Knole Park is a 1000 acre Tudor deer park, on the edge of Sevenoaks town centre. The centre piece is Knole House, a National Trust owned stately home built between 1456 and 1486.

The land is home to around 800 deer, and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The park had not changed much in 500 years, but in the great storm of 1987, 70% of the trees were lost.
National Trust
A National Trust is an organization dedicated to preserving the cultural or environmental treasures of a particular geographic region. They generally operate as private non-profit organizations, although some receive considerable support from their national government. The first such organization was the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty, which is the National Trust of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, formed in 1895 and operating as a charitable organisation.
