Brief description of site
The park and gardens at Sutton Place show layers of development, stretching back to the late-18th century when the parkland was first laid out. There are formal and informal gardens created in the late-19th and early-20th century. Significant work by Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe in the late-20th century utilised existing garden compartments and also involved the creation of a lake.
Brief history of site
Sir Richard Weston built the house in the late-1520s. There were various formal gardens and avenues in place until at least the late-18th century. By the late-19th century the landscape had been informalised and included parkland. New formal garden compartments and wooded pleasure grounds were created in the early-20th century. Stanley Seegar commissioned Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe in the late-20th century. He created a number of features within the existing formal compartments and the design as a whole represented the evolution of human life. The gardens are currently (2008) being further developed.
