Umberslade Park avenue
A tree avenue dating to the Post Medieval period. It is about 1.5miles long and was probably a vista rather than an approach to the house. It is marked on the Ordnance Survey map of 1886 and is situated north east of Tanworth in Arden.
1 The avenue at Umberslade, stretching for nearly 1.5miles, is shown on Beighton’s map of 1725 and is therefore to be associated with the late 17th/ early 18th century formal landscape removed in the 1740s. The avenue may have functioned as a vista rather than as an actual approach to the house in this period, although the main entrance to the house was on the west side. It was retained as a landscape feature in subsequent periods, but is now rather overgrown.
2 The OS 1:10560 1886 Sht Warks 24SE shows the avenue before it was cut by the railway.
