Kirkharle Hall landscape park was created by William Lorraine and Capability Brown in the 18th century. Capability Brown's first job was working on the Kirkharle estate. Part of the landscaping involved demolishing the village of Kirkharle. The park and formal garden at Kirkharle contains Grade II Listed Buildings and is protected as a Registered Park and Garden.
