An estate map by Kendall for Sir John Williams drawn in 1723 shows the estate land divided into fields with a double avenue running south from the house, a grove to the north-west and a canalised pond to the south-west. Sir Joshua Rowley inherited in 1768 and commissioned John Soane to build a new mansion located 200 metres north-west of the old house. In 1791, Sir William Rowley employed Humphry Repton to produce a Red Book.
