Brief description of site

Patshull Hall has late-17th-century formal gardens and pleasure grounds with 18th- and 19th-century additions. The grounds form the setting of a country house, surrounded by a park of 550 hectares.

Brief history of site

The moated manor house was owned by the Astley family from 1451 until 1765. Large sums were spent on landscaping the grounds in the late-17th century. Patshull Hall was rebuilt around 1750 by James Gibbs on a new site on higher ground. New ancilliary buildings were also added. From 1765, under new ownership, extensive works were undertaken in the grounds, probably with assistance from Lancelot Brown. Alterations and additions were carried out in the later-1850s.
