Brief description of site

The estate forms a rough triangle with the Manor and lake of about half a hectare in the vertex pointing north. To the south of the manor is parkland with some wooded areas. Over the years the number of trees has reduced.
Abbs (1999) notes a cricket pavilion (1923), a kitchen garden and an arbour.

Brief history of site

The Ordnance Survey 1" map (1813) shows a small group of buildings, labelled Tanners Farm, with no evidence of gardens or a lake. On the Ordnance Survey 6" map (1874) the house is called Great Tanners and orchards and a lake are marked.
