Scarisbrick Hall, Scarisbrick - West Lancashire

Landscape park possibly altered following Humphry Repton's Red Book proposals of 1803. Associated with, and surrounding, Scarisbrick Hall, a country house (now in use as a private school) extensively remodelled by AWN and EW Pugin in C19. The park is in multiple occupancy and notably the condition of perimeter tree belts is poor. Potential enabling development to secure the future of the Hall will inevitably impact on the park. Historic England is currently in discussions with the school regarding a management plan for the historic landscape to preserve and enhance the most important features.
