Brief description of site
Herriard Park has early formal gardens designed in 1699 by George London. There are also pleasure grounds and a landscape park extending to approximately 470 hectares.
Brief history of site
The estate came to the Paulet family after 1540. In the early-17th century Herriard passed to Lucy Paulet who was married to Sir Thomas Jervoise, in which family it still remains. At the end of the 17th century, John James was commissioned to build a new house. George London laid out the gardens between 1699 and 1708. The gardens were substantially re-modelled in the late-18th century following consultations with Humphry Repton, the work probably including the removal of London's formal gardens.
