Brief description of site

Stoke Park is a landscape park surrounding a country house. The park, which now occupies 115 hectares, has been a golf course since 1908.

Brief history of site

Lancelot Brown was commissioned to produce a plan for the grounds in 1750. Nathaniel Richmond was asked, in 1766, to improve the park. Humphry Repton produced a Red Book in 1792 to accompany a new house. A golf course was laid out by H S Colt in 1908, and in 1911 parts of the park were sold for housing.
