A landscape park associated with Letheringsett Hall (NHER 6521) is visible on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map (S1).
Norfolk HLC data states that it appears on Bryant's map of 1826 (S2).
The area of the park mapped is based on (S1), the HLC plots and the location of features known to have stood within it - these include an orangery (NHER 17205), a root/summer house (NHER 42794), hydraulic rams (NHER 6519), a water tank (NHER 42793) and a fountain (NHER 42796).
