National Trust, Sheringham Park
National Trust, Sheringham Park

Sheringham Park was the joint creation of Humphrey Repton (1752–1818), and his son John Adey Repton (1775–1860). The elegant Italianate house, rather in the style of John Nash, was largely the work of John Adey. The surrounding landscape park is his father’s masterpiece and, Norfolk man that he was, it is easy enough to see why Repton was so enthusiastic about it: ‘I can with truth pronounce, that Sheringham possesses more natural beauty and local advantages than any place I have seen’. The Reptons’ client was Abbot Upcher (d.1819), who had bought the estate in 1811, though the inside of the villa was only fitted up when his son Henry Ramey Upcher took up residence in 1839. Sheringham remained in the Upcher family until it was acquired by the National Trust in 1987. The house is today let to tenants, but the park is open to the public.

    We have spotted many ladybirds over the past week or two. If you are bringing the family to the park, why not search for some bugs on you walk around?
