HOUSE AND ESTATE
Chawton House has recently established two permissive footpaths across the estate: the Mingledown footpath (established with the support of the East Hampshire District Council and Forestry Commission), which can be accessed from Chawton village, and a footpath along the A32 to Farringdon (established with the aid of a Countryside Stewardship grant).
Future plans for the estate will build on the principle of sustainable farming using traditional organic methods, including the introduction of rare breed livestock, such as longhorn cattle and downland sheep. Four rescued shire horses are accommodated on the Library estate, and they are being trained to work the land in a traditional way.
