The present layout of the grounds dates from the 1860's although much alteration has taken place over the past year. The Round Oval itself was cleaned and refilled in the 1860s. It is situated in the arboretum at the rear of the house. Here members of the Spencer family, The Royal family and distinguished guests have planted a fascinating variety of trees. It was also here, on the Island, that Diana, Princess of Wales was laid to rest on 6th September 1997.
