Brief description of site

This is a well-preserved example of a large landscaped park laid out in its present form in the late-18th century, typical of the work of Capability Brown who provided a plan for improvements in 1775.

Brief history of site

The Fauconbergs had a deer park at Rise in the 13th century. A plan of 1716 shows the Bethells’ house, which had 13 hearths in 1672, on the site of the present Rise Hall, set in modest formal gardens. The owner chiefly responsible for the landscaping was William Bethell, owner 1772-1799, but some improvements were probably carried out by Richard Bethell, owner 1814-1864.
