  • (Medieval to Georgian - 1200 AD? to 1750 AD)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A little evidence has been found to establish the medieval origins of Radbourne Park, but in a different position to the present day park surrounding Radbourne Hall [see SMR 24307]. The surviving name 'Old Park Farm' suggests there had been an earlier park, and field name evidence from 18th century maps gives clues as to its position. The western boundary travels up the side of Brichwood, picking up some curving hedge-lines to encompass the plot of 45 acres known as 'The Parke' in 1711. (1)
