Brief description of site

Hanworth Hall is surrounded by an 18th-century landscape park and woodland covering 600 hectares. There are boundary plantations at the western and southern boundaries, with country roads bounding the site elsewhere.

Brief history of site

Hanworth Hall burnt down in 1700 and a new house was built. The park was first laid out probably in around 1770. Repton advised at the site from 1789-90. The plantations were established in the 19th century. In the late-19th century the lake was widened and the woodland extended.
