HGT has researched many of the historic landscapes in the area,including the Grade II* Registered Temple Dinsley. There are two further sites, unregistered, which we have not researched but which may be of local historic interest. These surround 2 houses by Lucas, the well known Arts & Crafts architect. Plans for several of his houses include Arts and Crafts gardens. These two sites, Offley Holes and Poynders End both had small areas of parkland: Poynders End park appears on the 1922 Ordnance Survey map and the Offley Holes parkland is noted at 50 acres in 1821 by Hugh prince.

Thank you for consulting Hertfordshire Gardens Trust on this application for the Preston Neighbourhood Area.

HGT has researched many of the historic landscapes in the area, including the Grade II* Registered Temple Dinsley. There are two further sites, unregistered, which we have not researched but which may be of local historic interest. These surround 2 houses by Lucas, the well known Arts & Crafts architect. Plans for several of his houses include Arts and Crafts gardens. These two sites, Offley Holes and Poynders End both had small areas of parkland: Poynders End park appears on the 1922 Ordnance Survey map and the Offley Holes parkland is noted at 50 acres in 1821 by Hugh prince in his book Parks in Hertfordshire since 1500.

HGT would be happy to give any assistance required in assessing the heritage values of the historic designed landscape, parks and gardens, required during the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan.
