- FORMAL GARDEN (First mentioned 1814, 19th Century to Modern - 1814 AD? to 1999 AD)
- PARK (First mentioned 1814, 19th Century - 1800 AD to 1899 AD)
A formal garden layout to the south and the west of the house, also vestiges of parkland. The construction date is uncertain, although there were remains of the gardens on the 1814 first edition 1 inch OS map and on Bryant's 1824 map (B16).
An extensive mid-C19 landscape park, pleasure grounds and formal gardens associated with a flamboyant contemporary country house. The house was rebuilt in the 1920s in the same position and footprint, but with little alteration to the grounds. The complex landscape survives largely intact, although with some simplification of the pleasure grounds and development in part of the north park. The park includes typical boundary belts, walks and two lakes. The genesis of the site is connected with the leading C19 designer William A Nesfield (1794‐1888) although the extent of his advice is unclear. Like Mentmore he may have advised on the building of the house on the new site and its relationship with the immediate environs. See report for detail (B17).
