Harlaxton Manor, Harlaxton - South Kesteven

A mid-C19 park and gardens with contemporary Jacobean/Baroque garden buildings, walled kitchen garden and house. Historic split management of landscape and conversion of house and gardens to institutional use, deterioration of built features (buildings at risk) and decline of wider parkland due to arable agriculture. Several garden buildings and structures have been repaired with Historic England grants and other funds. Harlaxton College has recently acquired extensive parkland formerly in separate ownership. A parkland management plan has been completed with Historic England support.
