Warbrook House, Eversley - Hart

A seminal site in garden history terms, the gardens were designed c1724 by the architect John James whose home it was, its geometric designs a masterclass in incorporating the wider landscape as garden. James' axes extend beyond the gardens but these, and the wider parkland has fragmented and deteriorated and conversion to a hotel and conference centre created major local change. Further development in and on the edge of the park is now proposed and works to improve the understanding of its significance, and a vision as part of a conservation management plan are being discussed.
