The Elizabethan gatehouse, with its nineteenth century romantic mock fortfications provides a show entrance to the north. Shute Barton has a medieval core which was greatly expanded in the 1650s, however a good part of it was torn down in the 1780s in order to create a drive from the gate-house to the newly built Shute House. Veitch advised on the planting of the grounds and the construction of the new drive. Some 10,000 trees were planted, several new roads, a lawn and a ha-ha were created.
