Full Description

Hemingstone Hall or 'Styles' & garden. Hall (LB Gd I) was built in 1558 by William Styles. The garden certainly existed before 1749. From the outside, this building appears to have been constructed c.1625. Hemingstone Hall was later extended to the east and north in the 18th century. Hemingstone Hall is located at the foot of a fairly steep south-facing slope. It is from this slope that the gardens extend, going to the back of the house. There is no park. The garden has a network of walks and terraces. Beyond this area, there is also a part known as 'a walnut ground'. An entrance court is immediately south of the hall along with a carriage sweep. To the west of the hall is a walled garden. Overall, this estate had a sophisticated garden considering the comparatively small size of this property. Details in (S1).
Also Listed barn to NE.
