Brief description of site
Wootton Lodge dates to around 1600, and was perhaps designed by Robert Smythson. The landscape was extensively altered by the Bamfords (the family owning JCB earthmoving equipment). There is a new hall south of Wootton Lodge with massive earth moving between this and the Lodge. The landscape created by the Bamfords includes a helicopter landing pad, lake, extensive lawns with statuary, planting and trees, all immaculately kept.
