Detailed Description

Little is known about Wood House or its park, which was probably a feature of the 19th century. The building complex lay in the most north-westerly part of the park. There were two drives running north-east and north-west towards it, from the southern and eastern boundaries respectively. The north-east drive was probably originally tree-lined. A pond lay to the north-east of the house, within an area of trees.
