  • England , Bridlington

    The site of the late-18th-century Dutch Farm at Carnaby is of particular historic interest retaining as it does significant remains, in its plan and water features, of a rare, albeit modest, example of a English version of Marie Antoinette’s Hameau de la Reine built in 1783 at Versailles. Both sections of the site are much overgrown with trees and bushes covering the earthworks and little of the outer canal or moat or so-called fishpond can be seen in the air view above. Fieldwork revealed that much of the original form of the Dutch farm still survived.

  • England , Halesowen

    The Leasowes is a partially-restored landscape of woodland, streams, pools, walks and ornamentation. It is what remains of an important mid-18th-century designed landscape called by its creator, William Shenstone, a 'ferme ornee'. A late-18th-century canal and an early-20th-century golf course have broken up the integrity of the estate.

  • England , Slough

    In the 18th century this site was a ferme ornee. The estate has now been redeveloped.
