Brief description of site

Honing Hall has a late-18th-century landscape park and woodland covering 20 hectares.

Brief history of site

The present hall was built in 1784, replacing an earlier hall on a different site. In 1792 Humphry Repton visited Honing and produced a Red Book of proposals to lay out a landscape park. Many of his suggestions were adopted and by the mid-19th century the park covered some 24 hectares.
