Brief description of site

The site comprises Lasborough Farm (the original medieval Manor), the late 18th-century Lasborough House and associated parkland and gardens. The parkland dates back to the late 18th century and overlies a previous deer park. There are terraced gardens at Lasborough Farm.

Brief history of site

The manor of Lasborough is recorded in the 11th century and the manor house itself from the 14th. Deer park and woodland was laid out around this house, which is now a farm. Further planting was carried out in the parkland during the late 18th century when a new house, Lasborough House or Lasborough Park, was built at a different location. Pleasure grounds were also laid out at this time. Some deforestation was carried out in the mid-20th century.
