Hatchlands Park

Hatchlands Park is a red-brick country house with surrounding gardens in East Clandon, Surrey, England, covering 170 hectares (430 acres). The park initially belonged to the Chertsey Abbey with the park being mentioned in the Domesday Book. In 1544, after the dissolution of the monasteries, it was granted by Henry VIII to Sir Anthony Browne and his wife, Lady Elizabeth Fitzgerald (commonly known as 'The Fair Geraldine'). The park was purchased in 1750 by Admiral Boscawen who landscaped the grounds. The park and house are now owned by the National Trust. © Paul Gillett [cc-by-sa/2.0]
