HISTORIC LANDSCAPE RESTORATION PLAN
Boughton House is surrounded by one of the best preserved early C18th formal landscapes in Britain; it was largely unlived in between 1750 and 1900, thus avoiding the late C18th changes in the landscape style which the majority of rural estates were subject to.
It still boasts magnificent avenues of lime, many of these trees being original clones now 300 years old; rightfully it is a Grade I landscape on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens.
The Tree and Woodland Company assisted The Landscape Agency in producing a restoration plan for this historic landscape. We surveyed and recorded nearly 2000 trees, and produced management recommendations for the restoration of the avenues in particular which will be implemented over the next 10 years with Higher Level Stewardship grant funding.
