MONUMENT NO. 1142574

DESCRIPTION + /

Formal gardens at Kirby Hall laid out during the 1580s possibly by Sir Christopher Hatton. By 1666 the area of gardens had been extended. A futher extension of the garden was made in 1689-92. Remodelling of the gardens took place in 1685-86 and in 1693-94, possibly using advice from George London. During the 1930s the gardens were excavated and the result were used for the restoration of the gardens. Additional excavations took place in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and as a result the restored garden was replaced with a simpler layout
