Brief description of site
Hesleyside has a landscape park with the remains of an early formal layout. There is also a walled garden.
Brief history of site
In 1631, during a period of relative peace in the Borders, a pele tower on the site was adapted into a house by adding a two-storey domestic range to the east of the tower. The formal landscape was probably first laid out around 1715. The walled garden dates from around 1770, and the landscape park dates from around 1776. A plan of this date shows the estate with a very formal structure. Considerable additions to the Hall and gardens were undertaken in the mid-19th century.
