CaptionSheffield Park Garden is noted as an 18th century landscape overlaid with 20th century planting. It is considered a bold composition predominantly of trees and large shrubs planted en masse to create vistas that enhance the scale and grandeur of the property. Sheffield (meaning sheep clearing) Park is mentioned in the Doomsday Book. In August 1538 Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk entertained Henry VIII here. By 1700 the Deer Park had been partially formalised by Lord De La Warr who planted avenues of trees radiating from the house and cleared areas to establish lawns. In 1796 it was sold to John Holroyd, created Baron Sheffield in 1781. During the Second World War the house and garden became the headquarters for a Canadian armoured division and Nissan huts were sited in the garden and woods.
