Haighlands

Introduction

Haighlands is a house with garden and grounds off Copperas Lane. The house is set in large informal gardens with extensive lawns, specimen trees, shrubberies and boundary belts. Part of the boundary wall is stone. Part is of brick incorporating a heated section. At the time of the remodelling of the site (in the late-19th century) a system of shared drives and walks was established between this site and the Moat House opposite (see separate entry). The site remains extant.
