WOOLSINGTON PARK - List Entry

  • Description

    "A late C18/early C19 landscape park and pleasure grounds providing the setting for a C17 and later country house.....

Since then the landscape has been little altered (1999), with the exception of a C20 development of houses which has been inserted at the south-west corner of the park, extending north along the west boundary...."
