This plan covers north-west Norfolk, an area characterised by arable and grassland interspersed with mixed woodland. Rainham Park at lower right and Melton Park in the centre are good examples of 18th-century formal gardens. Isolated villages and dispersed farms represent the dominant settlement pattern in an area made up of large private estates.
