Capernwray Hall, Over Kellet / Arkholme-with-Cawood / Borwick - Lancaster

Formal gardens of mid- to late-C19, a rose garden of 1901 by Thomas Mawson and parkland of early C19. Development south of the Hall has affected the historic southern approach. New landscaping is maturing and reducing the impact of development and the character of the rose garden and immediate environs of the Hall are being restored. Parkland largely retains its character, but parkland trees are declining in number and condition. A conservation management plan has been produced for the park and gardens, and the owners remain committed to managing the historic environment.
