South Hertfordshire: Estate restoration
The site: Following a devastating fire on Good Friday 1963, only a small archway now remains of the 18th century manor house which once stood at the centre of the estate. The park that surrounds the house was planted with conifers in the late 1960s by the estate's then owner but very little has taken place in recent years which adds to the charm and mystery that surrounds it.
Owned by a private client, the estate secured planning permission and a new stately home has been built on the site of the former house.
The project: We have been commissioned to carry out phases of the landscape restoration, which includes extensive forestry works, individual tree works, rhododendron removal and restoration of the lake and park.
We have also built all of the new gardens, roads and drives and have a maintenance agreement to look after the entire 320 acre estate.
