Brief description of site

Shireoaks Hall has the remains of a late-17th and early-18th-century landscape park with water features.

Brief history of site

It is likely that Thomas Hewett built Shireoaks between 1612 and 1617, the house probably being designed by John Smythson. The courts and terraces north-east of the house were probably laid out at the same time. The Hall was partially demolished and gutted in 1811. The hall and stables were put on the English Heritage Buildings at Risk Register in 2006.
