An engraving of the grounds of Leyton Grange shows a Baroque style : open-ended avenues of trees on a very formal pattern, geometrically shaped planted beds, and (towards the top of the engraving) a symmetrically shaped basin of water and a straight water canal to the right (east) of that.
This Grange estate drawing includes the parish church of St Mary’s but as a tiny building (bottom left). At Stowe Lord Cobham preserved the parish church alone out of a whole village, but hid it from view with thick trees. Both instances look like deliberate snubs to established religion.
The remains of an 18th century garden path were found at 108-110 Vicarage Road in 1997.
