Brief description of site
The site has the remains (now largely archaeological) of early-18th-century formal gardens, which since the 19th century have been partly obscured by agricultural and woodland development. The estate now covers about 720 hectares, of which the gardens at their most extensive comprised about 23 hectares.
Brief history of site
Farley Hall was built in 1729 for John Walter. Garden plans were drawn up by Charles Bridgeman at about the same time, but the extent to which they were implemented is not clear.
