Westwick Hall, Cambridge 4094

Oakington, South Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire, England

Brief Description

A country house constructed in 1855 on the site of a 17th-century house. The grounds feature a walled garden.

Detailed Description

The hall is approached by a lime and chestnut lined drive underplanted with snowdrops, and overlooks a small park to the south and west.

A corn windmill in the park in 1880 is now demolished.

To the north is an enclosed garden, but the late-16th-century dovecote was demolished after 1905. Behind this is an extensive walled garden and a row of estate terraced cottages each with its own garden. An abandoned railway cuts through the park and the stream has been diverted to run adjacent to the railway line.
