The boathouse on the eastern shore of the lake is listed grade 2 (List Entry Number 1226057). At the time of this photo access to it from the bank was fenced off, presumably for safety reasons. See also SU9722 : Boathouse, Petworth House.
Petworth House and Park :: SU9721
Petworth, formerly known as Leconfield, is a major country estate on the outskirts of Petworth, itself a town created to serve the house. Described by English Heritage as "the most important residence in the County of Sussex", there was a manorial house here from 1309, but the present buildings were built for the Dukes of Somerset from the late 17th century, the park being landscaped by "Capability" Brown. They are now managed by the National Trust. The house contains a fine collection of paintings and sculptures.

The house itself is grade I listed (List Entry Number 1225989) and the park as a historic park (1000162). Several individual features in the park are also listed.
