Shrubland Hall, Coddenham / Hemingstone / Barham - Mid Suffolk

Extensive mid-C19 Italianate garden by Charles Barry set in C17 park, for which Humphry Repton prepared a Red Book in 1789 and William Woods in 1808. Many proposals have been implemented in the expanded park. The site is in divided ownership following sale in 2009 and boundary fence erected. Management of Old Hall landscape is improving but the built garden features and planting are significantly decayed. Improved management strategies for the park as a whole need to be developed to safeguard its future.
