Sbc Note

The designed landscape was laid out in the early 19th century and has remained similar in extent to the present day. It can be seen clearly on the 1stedition OS plan c.1860. Newark Castle, the original house, was considered as part of the designed landscape and was used in the 19th century as a 'folly' in the picturesque design. This extends from the north at Yarrowford to the south at Faulshape and is bordered by the two rivers. To the west the designed landscape is enclosed by woodland.
