Notes about this historic site

1 The walled ha-ha at Charlecote Park formed part of the garden redesign by Capability Brown in the 1760s. There was a second wall in the 19th century.
2 The later ha-ha partially collapsed in April 2012. This collapsed section was dismantled and a watching brief was carried out during the works. The crude nature of the construction of the 18th cnetury wall suggested this earlier brickwork may not have been visible at this time. It is likely that it was covered by a contemporary brick skin which was subsequently replaced by the later ha-ha wall, which appeared to be of 19th or 20th century date.
