Extensions to the park had been made by 1900 and 1926.
More information : Eighteenth century landscape garden at Wycombe Abbey containing features including greenhouses constructed in 1811 and early 19th century lodges. Wood and parkland is present to the south and east of the house. Garden activity prior to Capability Brown's work in 1762 is uncertain.
