Brief Description

Beaudesert Park has the remains of a former landscape park. The house survives in a ruinous form and the site is now used as a Scout and Guide camp. Surviving features include traces of rockwork attributed to James Pulham. There are also some specimen trees but the site is heavily overgrown with seedling trees and rhododendrons.

History

Beaudesert Park was created during the 18th century. It may have been designed by William Emes. The site was the home of the Paget family who were once the largest landowners in Staffordshire. Humphry Repton produced a design for an Elizabethan-style garden during the 18th century but there is no evidence that this was carried out.
