Dunorlan Park :: TQ5939
Dunorlan Park was once the private grounds of a large and very grand mansion owned by the Yorkshire-born millionaire, Henry Reed.
The garden was laid out in the 1850s and 1860s by the renowned Victorian gardener Robert Marnock. Although the mansion no longer exists, the garden is one of the best preserved examples of Marnock's work.
Dunorlan Park is now an historically important and much-loved public park. The Heritage Lottery Fund award of £2.1 million has enabled the restoration of Dunorlan's historic features and improved access into and around the park.
The park contains a number of amenities including a cafe, boating lake, putting green, car parks, toilets, as well as rolling Wealden countryside. For a map see LinkExternal link
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
