Additional Information

On 1856/57 OS map 'The Park' is shown northwest of Brimham Lodge. It was originally a deer park, more extensive than shown on the map.
On the 1909 OS map, a sun dial and possible garden layout is indicated.
Today it is a property of the National Trust and the park boundaries are indistinguishable in the farming landscape.
