Brief description of site

The name 'Isingherst' exists at least as early as 1575. The park is shown on the 1813 Ordnance Survey map. Features include a stream, lake and kitchen garden. The estate looks much the same on the Ordnance Survey 1" map (1940) and the Ordnance Survey 6" map (1981), although at the last date there is no sign of an enclosed kitchen garden.
