Full description

No maps provided with (S1) so boundary is open to correction.

Woodland thickened and clumps planted in 19th century and drive moved to E side. Repton advised on the site but the work may not have been carried out until after his death. Impressive 19th century shrubbery and woodland garden remains, also early 20th century water garden. Kitchen garden 18th century with sheds, gardeners house, etc.
