Lydiard Park:
once a medieval deer park

Aquired by the Swindon corporation in 1943 from the Bolingbroke estate, who had occupied the house since 1420, the house has been completely restored and is now a museum and art gallery.

The gardens, once a medieval deer park is currently undergoing a £5 million pound restoration, returning important features such as its lost lake and ornamental fruit and flower garden back to their former glory (see links below).
  
A popular summer venue for open-air theatre and family barbecues.
