Another great park not far from home. The park was originally set out as a private estate and its design has been attributed to Capability Brown and to a Mr Richmond. An wealthy merchant, John Boyd, purchased the site and built Danson House, designed by Robert Taylor (the architect of the Bank of England) in the style of a classic Palladian villa, between 1762 and 1767. There is a large lake, fields, various gardens, a tea room and pub. Nearby to William Morris’s Red House.
