Newark Park
This is a National Trust Property in south Gloucestershire comprising a house and parkland.   The house dates from around 1550 and became a National Trust property in 1949, but was leased out and left to the residents to maintain.   It was the arrival in 1970 of Robert Parsons, an American raised in Texas, that began the transformation of the property to that seen today.
 
[Note to SatNav users visiting the property:  the approach road directly east out of Wotton-Under-Edge is single track, and it is probably best to disregard any route going directly through this town either towards or away from the property (I would advise working from Junction 13 of the M5 Motorway rather than Junction 14, and when exiting, follow the "Exit" signs regardless of what the SatNav says )]
