Charlton Park, Wiltshire
The estate has been owned by the Earls of Suffolk since the Reformation. It was formerly the land on which Malmesbury Abbey was built. The house was finished in 1607, having been built for Thomas Howard, 1st Earl of Suffolk, and his wife. It is now the home of the current Earl and Countess, Michael Howard, 21st Earl of Suffolk, and his wife, Linda Howard, Countess of Suffolk.
The small village of Charlton is immediately to the east of the estate. The civil parish of Charlton encompasses the village and the estate.
