Description : Once fine demesne, retains original layout for important late 18th century house. House on high ground surrounded by a belt of trees, with vistas from the house to north and southeast over parkland. Shelter belts formerly surrounded the property. Large ornamental ponds with islands to northeast. In the mid-19th century there were highly ornamental gardens south, east and west of the house, presumably complementing the Turner conservatory. By 1908 the OS revision shows the area reduced to walks and probably shrubbery and an aviary is noted. None of this remains. In multiple occupancy since 1970s. Land intensively farmed.
