Brief history of site

There was definitely work done here by Capability Brown for £600, but it is not entirely clear what. A new ha-ha was made to take in the fields to the park. There was already a pre-existing lake, but now it looks very much like typical Brown commission, with an island, trees hiding the origin (a dammed up small stream) and over-flow with cascade and extra sluices for emergency drainage.
