The Rangers of Windsor Great Park
The primary responsibility of the Ranger of Windsor Great Park is to offer oversight and guidance to the Deputy Ranger and his team in the day-to-day stewardship of one of the country’s oldest landed Estates.
This trusted role can trace its roots back to 1559 when Sir Henry Neville was appointed Ranger in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The role is now held by His Majesty The King, Charles III.
