About Wallington

National Trust LinkThe Wallington Estate in Northumberland has been around since the 15th century, although it was the 17th century onwards that the Blackett family and then the Trevelyan family developed it into its current form. Wallington is a great place for wildlife, and has a good mixture of habitats including woodland, pastures, rivers and formal gardens.
