Bramshill Park, Bramshill / Eversley / Mattingley - Hart

Significant C17 formal gardens within a park of medieval origin whose walled gardens, landscape and water features survived mid-C18 and later deformalisation, with walks, rides, avenues added and the River Hart altered as the estate enlarged. The wider park was sold or adapted to commercial forestry as the house became the Police Staff College in 1952. Numerous college buildings were built in the grounds before the core was sold in 2014 and major development proposals were subject to a recent Public Inquiry. With other changes in the wider park the range of impacts on Bramshill is broad.
