The 1856/7 OS map shows a complex of follies in woodland.
Hackfall was created by William Aislabie between 1750 and 1769, as a pleasure garden.
He installed a variety of follies and woodland walks, and it became a tourist attraction, which it remained until the 1930's, when the site was cleared and the timber sold.
It has recently been restored through the efforts of the Hackfall Trust and Woodland Trust, who now manage the site.
