Full Description

Parkland associated with Stubben Edge Hall can be identified from late 19th century Ordnance Survey maps. These suggest that the open park was extended to the south-west sometime between c. 1880 and 1900, incorporating a number of earlier fields. A croquet ground is named to the south of the house on the 1st ed. 25" OS map, and a trough and pump are named to the north of the house. A rectangular feature with a glasshouse is probably the kitchen garden, with a small orchard to the north. Further glasshouses had been erected by the end of the 19th century. (1, 2)
