 List of Criteria for the Identification of Parks and
   Gardens for Inclusion in the Sussex Gardens
Trust Database as Being of Special Local Historic
Sites do not have to be in pristine condition but some of the original fabric must
survive intact. Public, private and institutional parks, gardens and open spaces

   Medieval deer parks
   17th Century parks or gardens or earlier
   18th Century parks or gardens
   19th and 20th Century parks or gardens that pre-date 1914
   Gardens that post-date 1914 that are more than 30 years old

                      Important Associations
The following qualitative criteria may be used to support the inclusion of sites:

 Where a park or garden can be linked to an historical event of national or
  local importance.
 Where a park or garden has exploited the natural landscape or geology in the
  design, e.g. quarry gardens.
 Plant collections where they form part of the designed landscape but would
  not be considered for inclusion in themselves
