Westwood Park, Westwood / Doverdale / Droitwich Spa / Hampton Lovett / Ombersley - Wychavon

Elements of a C17 garden and park associated with an imposing hunting lodge, later a house. Some garden and park changes and additions of C18 to early C20 date. The vast majority of the park is in intensive cultivation and stripped of parkland trees. There is some post-war development in the vicinity of the main house. Residential development and expansion of a business park affect setting, particularly to the north and east.
