Brislington House - Bristol, City of (UA) / Bath and North East Somerset (UA)

One of the first and most influential asylum landscapes in Britain. Now subdivided between a sixth form college, private residential development, commercial sports facilities, industrial units and a management training centre. Despite this, some elements of the designed landscape survive. Its designation was re-evaluated by Historic England in 2017. Some adjustment to the boundary was made but no change to the grade. Part of the park is in Bath and North East Somerset Unitary Authority.
