Gawsworth Hall

Leaving the Hall by the North door, a flight of stone steps from the garden leads up to the ancient rookery and onto the Tilting Ground, which formed part of a vast Elizabethan pleasure garden. Built by Sir Edward Fitton in the late 1590s, it consisted of a wilderness garden, with a long graveled walk (now called the bowshot) giving views over the Cheshire plain towards the Welsh hills. In this formal 20-acre paddock there is also evidence of a maze, extensive brick revetment, and excavation in the low central section has revealed that it was sealed with red clay.
