Brief description of site

The garden was in place by 1773. Repton visited the site in 1800 and improvements were discussed, but probably never implemented. The estate was sold in 1828, and the house was demolished. Cottages were built on the site, and the park and garden were abandoned. A few features remain, including an icehouse and some wall segments.
