Brief description of site

Hanslope Park is a late-17th-century house which has been subsequently altered. The gardens were designed by Humphry Repton and include tree avenues, plantations and water features.

Brief history of site

The gardens, designed by Repton, were laid out in the late 18th century.

The grounds have since been affected by Ministry of Defence installations and only vestiges of the earlier landscape remain.
