Garden plan from Henry Hulsbergh's "Vitruvius Brittanicus" series. Goodwood House, West Sussex. The 1st Duke of Richmond, a natural son of Charles II, first rented and then, in 1697, bought the house and park so that he could hunt in the neighbouring village of Charlton, where one of the earliest and most fashionable hunts in the country was based. The 2nd Duke enlarged and modified the existing house using the architect Roger Morris, who was also responsible for the charming banqueting house, Carné’s Seat, situated in a commanding position on the hill overlooking Goodwood and its park. The 2nd Duke was very interested in trees, planting up not only High Wood, but also other areas around the house. Some of these trees still survive, including the cork oak trees and cedars of Lebanon.
