4 Eighteenth to nineteenth century Kineton park was located between Kineton and Little Kineton. As recorded in the local HER record, it was shown on Greenwoods map of 1822 and the Ordnance Survey map of 1906. This area was surveyed from aerial photographs as part of the SE Warwickshire and Cotswolds HLS NMP project. A possible remnant of the designed landscape of the park was identified in the form of a tree avenue to the south-east of Castle Hill, visible on an aerial photograph of 1945. aerial photographs of 2007 show that the tree avenue has now been removed, and the area returned to pasture.
