The first record that we have of the WKG is the 1743 estate plan which marks the site of the current kitchen garden. This plan “shows the ambitious landscaping scheme for the gardens which paralleled the developments in the house”. “ Earthwork evidence still visible suggests that much of this scheme was actually implemented”. (Hartley)
As shown on the 1st and 2nd edition OS maps the WKG is 1.976 acres. This includes the outbuildings and yard to the North. It is rectangular with the SW corner cut off.
The present WKG is roughly a square and is an acre in size.
The WKG is currently a combined kitchen and pleasure garden.
