Iscoyd Park was built in the early C18 and was extended by William Hanmer in 1747. From 1780 it was owned by Rev Richard Congreve (d 1782) and his descendants, who sold it to Philip Lake Godsal in 1843. The kennels were built in the mid C19 in an existing stable yard, and are shown on the 1873 Ordnance Survey.
