Abington Hall, Abington Pigotts

Introduction

Features of Abington Hall include a lawn and an enclosed kitchen garden.

A fountain to the east of the hall is shown on the first Ordnance Survey map with a lawn leading to a ride through The Woodlands. From 1907 until 1920 the Hall was used as the rectory. There is an enclosed kitchen garden and today the garden to the south of the Hall contains shrubs and mature trees overlooking the park.
History

The Hall was built on a new site in 1829 by Lt. Col. G. E. Graham. Graham created a small park to the south-west soon afterwards.
