Trent Park
Middlesex

Trent Park originates as part of Henry IV's hunting estate Enfield Chase; during the 18th Century it came under the ownership of Royal Physician Richard Jebb, and was landscaped by Humphry Repton to include features such as the the ornamental lakes and lime tree avenue.

29 Apr 2014: In 2013 the site of the former Middlesex University, which includes the mansion house, was sold to Malaysia?s Allianze University College of Medical Sciences. Access to the site is currently prohibited, and it isn't clear if this will change in the future.
