The original layout was probably by George London and Henry Wise, then developed into an extensive mid-C18 park for George Grenville by Lancelot Brown; William Pitt, later first Earl of Chatham, is credited with significant input with regard to the design. The house and estate are regarded as one of the finest remaining examples of historic landscape.
