A rectangular hollow approximately 33m by 30m in size enclosed by low banks between 3 and 8m wide is visible on aerial photographs of 1946 and digital images derived from lidar data captured between 1998 and 2017 as earthworks approximately 210m south-west of Ugbrooke House. The visible earthworks are probably the remains of the early 18th century 'Pitt Garden'. Projections into the interior of the hollow may be evidence of former steps into the sunken garden.
