Seasonal sights: The Attingham deer herd
Follow the World War II walk for the best opportunities to see the herd of fallow deer in their habitat. There are around 200 fallow deer in the park, and during the winter they are fed a supplement feed to keep them strong and healthy.
It's a tradition rooted in history at Attingham to feed the deer; the eighth Lord Berwick loved his fallow deer herd so much he would often feed them himself by hand in the winter months.
Following the Prime Minister's announcement of the latest lockdown in England in January 2021 there will be no deer feeding in front of visitors during this time.
While exercising outdoors please remember to make space and keep a 2 metre distance from other visitors.
