Brief description of site

The site is an mid-18th-century landscape garden around an 18th-century Gothic revival house, owned and improved by Sanderson Miller. The gardens occupy about 80 hectares (45 hectares registered). Features include woodland with walks and ornamental structures.

Brief history of site

The site had formerly been property of the monks of Stoneleigh Abbey. At the Dissolution Radway Grange was purchased by Francis Goodyere in 1545. The site changed hands a number of times, and in 1715 was sold to Sanderson Miller, a merchant from Banbury. In 1737 it was left to his son, the noted amateur architect Sanderson Miller. From 1739 Miller undertook a programme of improvement on his own property at Radway which is partially recorded in his surviving diaries for 1749-50 and 1756.
