Buckinghamshire Nationally Important Sites

Buckinghamshire Nationally Important Sites

The nationally important sites of Buckinghamshire have in general been the subject of considerable research and the fact that they are registered offers them a certain amount of protection. However, we try to keep abreast of any developments that may have consequences for the gardens and surrounding landscape.  As a statutory consultee, The Gardens Trust is notified of any planning applications which are then passed on to the county gardens trusts.

A majority of those that are registered Grade I are run by the National Trust and are open to the public regularly, as is Stoke Poges Memorial Gardens. Wotton Underwood is privately owned and therefore visiting is by appointment only. However please note that many of the Grade II* and Grade II properties are privately owned and not generally open to the public.

During the Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown anniversary in 2016 and that of Humphry Repton in 2018, the Research and Recording group looked at some of these sites in relation to the work of these two iconic landscape designers. As a result of our Brown research Wotton Underwood was raised from a Grade II* to a Grade I and Stoke Place was added to the register at Grade II. The Repton research resulted in the publication of ‘Humphry Repton in Buckinghamshire and Beyond’ (see Campaigns).

Please note that Ditton Park, Eton College and Herschel Park are in the historic county (pre-1974 boundaries) and Ashridge is partly in Bucks and partly in Herts.
