|Type of record:||Designed Landscape|
|Name:||Woodgate House Park|
This garden was reorganised in 1870 and 1876, removing several roads and enlarging a pond to create a formal lake. A kitchen garden was also added. The formal layout of the gardens suggests that this reorganisation utilised surviving 17th century landscape boundaries.

(S1) grade two-star (regional importance). In 1840 there were extensive farm buildings to southwest of house and a small pond to the east.

Scheme drawings by W. Finch 1870 and 1883. However the very unusual formal layout may suggest that surviving boundaries of a 17th century landscape were being followed. Garden walls listed Grade II.
