HISTORICAL NOTE: The Park had been laid out by 1833 by its
owner Thomas Billings as an oval tree-lined drive with a
central park which, for a short period in the mid-C19, became
a zoological garden. In 1839 the development was bought by
Samuel Daukes who continued the building. One of the principal
developments influenced by White's and Nash's schemes for
Regent's Park (1809-11) London.
A similar Papworth-derived design to Greenfields, No.35 The
Park (qv) and Oakley, No.55 The Park (qv).
