Bearwood College, Arborfield and Newland / Barkham / Winnersh - Wokingham (UA)

This C19 landscape park and woodland surrounds a Victorian country house on formal terraces overlooking a picturesque lake with early designs by Gilpin and a Pulhamite garden. Subject to resent alterations with the gardens and pleasure grounds a private school and charitable trust, the wider park a golf course and Reading FC's training site, the parkland features are varying in condition. A Conservation Management Plan and liaison group agreed funded proposals for tree management and Pulhamite garden works in 2018 with Historic England advising on how proposals can be progressed.
