Worth Park, Crawley

Winner of the Landscape Institute's Heritage and Conservation Award and the Sussex Heritage Trust Public & Community Award. The Worth Park Estate was developed with a fine Italianate mansion from the 1850's but gained a reputation after the grounds were re-modeled as a romantic and picturesque landscape by James Pulham and Sons in the 1870's. Becoming a public park in the 1960's most of Pulham's original terracotta terracing with staircase, a formal fountain surrounded topiary yews, ornamental themed gardens, glazed walkway and lake were virtually lost due to decades of reduced parks funding. Allen Scott led a £2.3m NLHF project through all funding, conservation research and design stages to win a Landscape Institute Heritage and Conservation Award restoring four Listed structures, views and vistas, planting and gardens and newly re-created parkland walks.
