Woburn Farm, Addlestone - Runnymede

An Arcadian 'ferme ornée' designed by Philip Southcote from 1734-5, highly influential in the history of garden design but rather ephemeral in nature. Now in divided ownership and varying uses very little of the landscape laid out by Southcote remains today apart from the wooded banks of the Bourne stream that was part of Southcote's circuit around the farm. Isolated parkland architecture features sit within highly frangmented settings. With such high levels of loss of historic design intention and character the overall integrity of the registered area need reassessing.
