Brief description of site

The site had a small house and garden on the 1813 Ordnance Survey map, which was further developed in the later 19th century. Features included a large lake, pinetum, conservatory, substantial parkland, vineries, kitchen garden and orchards. A recent map (Ordnance Survey 6 inch, 1980) suggests appreciable changes in land use, though the pools and Cinder Wood are still there.

Brief history of site

There is an un-named house with a small garden, including trees, corresponding to the site of Barham House, shown on the Ordnance Survey 1st edition map (18l3). No ponds are marked.
