Statfold Hall

Introduction

Samuel Pipe-Wolferstan employed William Emes in 1776. His diaries record Emes' visits and the work that was done.

Nothing of the historic layout remains except the kitchen garden of 1779, which in 1999 was almost entirely cultivated. In one corner of the kitchen garden is the family chapel and cemetery.

History

William Marshall lived at Statfold between 1784 and 1786 and helped the owner to run the estate, both being interested in 'rural ornament'. Marshall, although better known as an agriculturalist, wrote 'Planting and Ornamental Gardening' (1785) there.
