Prestwood

Introduction

The house dates to the 16th century, and was remodelled in the 19th century. It was a sanitorium by 1925, then a hospital with wards on the terraces. It is now a care home for the elderly.

Nineteenth-century planting is identifiable, but with considerable agricultural overlay.

The site is historically important (Repton created a Red Book), but given its poor state of preservation, is not listed on the English Heritage register of Historic Parks and Gardens.
