The first edition 6" OS map shows a fairly large area of landscaped parkland, lodge at entrance to the drive, walled kitchen (?) garden and woodland garden. Recent AP's show most of parkland opened up for agricultural use. Most of gardens around house have survived (B1).
Brief account of the gardens in early August 1833 (B2).
Humphry Repton was apparently consulted by J Fryer Esq sometime before 1796. Repton advised on painting the house and concealing a building with trellising; he may also have created a flower garden (B3).
