Charlecote Park

Hob Uid: 333063
Location :
Warwickshire
Stratford-on-Avon
Charlecote, Wellesbourne and Walton, Hampton Lucy
Grid Ref : SP2570056470
Summary : A Landscape park, deer park, formal gardens and pleasure grounds to Charlecote Park House covering an area of about 105 hectares. The deer park was created during the 16th century with landscaping dating to about 1757-60 by Lancelot Brown. The park was extended during the 19th century. Brown was also resposible for the removal of complex late 17th century and early 18th century formal gardens. The present formal gardens and pleasure grounds date to the mid 19th century.
More information : The boundary of the park can be traced in places on the south, east and west sides by the (unsurveyable) remains of a bank. Its route to the north could not be determined but a postulated line is indicated on the 6". The park still holds c.300 deer. (1)

Medieval deer park, 17th century formal gardens, landscaped in the 18th century with 19th century formal gardens. (2)

A 16th century deer park and 17th century formal gardens landscaped in the mid 18th century by Lancelot Brown, with 19th century formal gardens and pleasure grounds surrounding Charlecote Park House which was built in the 16th century and was remodelled in the early and mid 19th century. The site is situated circa 8 km south of Warwick and covers an area of circa 105 hectares, of which circa 103 hectares is parkland. The park surrounds the house and remains a managed deer park (1999). The present gardens were developed from the mid C18 when George Lucy commissioned Lancelot Brown to remove complex late C17 and early C18 formal gardens situated to the north of the house. A kitchen garden lies east-south-east of the house. (3)

Lidar imagery viewed as part of the SE Warwickshire and Cotswolds HLS NMP survey, shows possble medieval settlement features at SP 25631 56069, particularly hollow ways, one which extends to the Old Town copse. These earthworks are likely to predate the landscaping of the park. The features were not mapped as they were outside the project area. (4)
