Stoneleigh Abbey, Stoneleigh / Ashow - Warwick

Complex multi-phase landscape, incorporating a medieval deer park and work by Repton, Nesfield and Percy Cane. The deer park is now a golf course. A business park and residential enclaves have been built within the historic landscape. A programme of restoration of the cascades, bridges and other water features has been undertaken through the Natural England Stewardship scheme. Other parts of the historic estate remain vulnerable, including from the proposed route of HS2.
