Brief description of site

The site originated in the medieval period. The remnants of a late-17th-century formal garden are largely overlain by the remains of a small 18th-century landscape park, which at its most extensive covered about 18 hectares. Only about 7 hectares now survive, with a 20th-century formal garden and lawns beside the house.

Brief history of site

An existing house was rebuilt and elaborate formal gardens laid out between 1688 and about 1705. In the late-18th-century these gardens were largely demolished in favour of an informal landscape park. Nineteenth-century developments included formal gardens, which were gone by 1997.
