When Eshton Hall was rebuilt in 1825-7, it already had extensive pleasure grounds laid out around it, along with stunning views of the parkland and moorland beyond. A ha ha allowed uninterrupted views from the south east front of the hall. To the north west side of the house there was a terraced garden featuring a wide flight of steps. The owners of the house would use these steps to walk, by way of a viaduct (now demolished) across Eshton Lane to a walled garden in Gamber Wood. The distinctive iron railings lining the road up to the hall were restored with the aid of a grant from the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust in 2001.


From A65 in Gargrave, take Eshton Road (to Malham). After 2 miles, view parkland on either side of the road. A public footpath skirts the western boundary starting at Home Farm.
