Summary : Deer park situated northeast of Nettlecombe Court. It was first documented in 1532. A park to the south of the house was created during the 18th century.
More information : (Centred ST 059384) A park north-east of Nettlecombe manor house was mentioned in 1532, and measured 80 acres in 1556. A second park south of the house was created in the 18th century, probably because the old park was low-lying and more suited to meadow than to pasture. (See illust for extent in 1839). (1)

The old park north of the house consisted of only 20 acres about 150 years ago. (2)
