Details

MALTBY SANDBECK PARK SK59SE 4/57 Ha-ha approximately 50 metres to south of Sandbeck Park (house) GV II Ha-ha. c1771-73. Probably by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown for the Earl of Scarbrough. Coursed magnesian limestone rubble. Dry-stone retaining wall capped by overhanging course and forming division between parkland and gardens to Sandbeck Park (q.v.); continues eastwards from a position approximately 80 metres to south of the house. The labourer's wage book (cited in Girouard, p1025) suggests that much of the years 1771-73 were occupied in constructing ha-has around the house. M. Girouard, 'Sandbeck Park, Yorkshire - III,' Country Life, Oct 21st 1965.
