From the arched entrance we walk along the main park road passing grazing pastures, before turning into woodland and a gentle climb up to the tower.
The Brizlee Tower, a Grade 1 listed building was erected in 1781 by Hugh, the First Duke of Northumberland to overlook his parkland designed by Capability Brown in 1765. The inscription around it reads "Look around! I myself have measured out all these things; they are of my ordering, my design; many of these tress have been planted by my own hand". The views on a good day reach across to the coast and up to the Cheviot Hills.
From here we follow the track back down to return back along the main park road.
The park is rich in wildlife and during the walk you may see any one of three varieties of Deer grazing here, Red Squirrels, Pheasants, Foxes, Peacocks, Curlews and various other birds.
