The story of the synergy of Chillingham’s wild white cattle, its castle and its church is being told for the first time in a book with a foreword written by the Prince of Wales.

Chillingham – Its Cattle, Castle and Church is a collaborative history written by experts and members of the community, including Chillingham Castle’s owner, Sir Humphry Wakefield.
