Record Details

NHER Number:42043
Type of record:Monument
Name:Post medieval ha ha in grounds of Ormesby Hall

Summary

An extant ha ha of post medieval date is visible on aerial photographs within the grounds of Ormesby Hall. It separated a formal area of the grounds of the hall, from a less formal area of parkland. The last hall (NHER 8650), which was demolished, was of Georgian date and it is likely that the ha ha also dates from that period. However, it is possible that there was an earlier hall at the site and that the ha ha may also be of earlier date.

It extends for 105m on a curved alignment between TG 4950 1450 to TG 4959 1446. It separated a formal area of the grounds of the hall, from a less formal area of parkland. The last hall (NHER 8650), which was demolished, was of Georgian date and it is likely that the ha ha also dates from that period. However, it is possible that there was an earlier hall at the site and that the ha ha may be of earlier date.
