In 1822 Lysons wrote ‘the plantations are upon an extensive scale, several hundred acres having been enclosed for that purpose’. Stockdale described it as ‘a very handsome spacious mansion delightfully situated on an eminence and sheltered by extensive woody plantations’ while White (1850) noted that it was ‘a large and handsome stuccoed mansion, in a finely wooded park, on a commanding eminence, upon the summit of which are a number of barrows or tumuli, in which urns and Roman coins have been found …. The ornamental grounds are extensive, and the plantations which crown the summits of the hills cover many acres’.
