Brief history of site
Ford Grey, later created Earl of Tankerville, built the present house around 1690 and laid out formal gardens and rides through the park. In 1746 the site was sold to Matthew Fetherstonhaugh who extended the estate and carried out further substantial alterations to the house and grounds, including work in the ornamental gardens to a plan attributed to Lancelot Brown. Humphry Repton was engaged to improve the house and grounds in 1793 and a Red Book was produced in 1810.
