Brief description of site
Dutton Homestall is an early-20th-century garden laid out with a sunken garden. The site has Pulhamite rockwork and bog gardens to the south and east of an Elizabethan timber-framed manor house.
Brief history of site
There has been a dwelling at the Homestall since the 14th century. By 1830, there was a simple farmhouse on the site with no garden. By 1903 the house was derelict. Subsequently, under the ownership of H. Partridge, it was restored and enlarged (as shown in a 1907 photograph), and its grounds 'tastefully laid out'.
