Boreatton Hall

Visitor Access, Directions & Contacts

Boreatton Hall was first built around 1700 for the Hunt Family, and extensive formal grounds probably dating to that period are now lost, but visible on aerial photography (Stamper 1996, 28).

The grounds around the hall were imparked by at least 1827 (Greenwood 1827). The park included the wooded area of Boreatton Moss, and extended as far as the northern part of the town of Baschurch, from which the Hall was approached by a private drive. The park was also crossed by a public road, running roughly south-west to north-east, and passing the northern edge of Boreatton Moss (Greenwood 1827).

In 1851, Boreatton Hall was the seat of Rowland Hunt. At that time the park included fine avenues of beech and other trees (Bagshaw 1851, 215). By 1890, the public road across the park had been shut (O.S. 6", XX.SE 1890; XXV11.NE 1891).
