Estates & Development

The University is situated on an estate of 650 acres, with extensive woods, lakes and parkland. The landscape we see today owes much to the work of Ralph Sneyd who began planting on a grand scale in 1830 and the basic design of the Keele Garden is attributed to William Emes.
The Grounds Team manages the maintenance of the woods, lakes and parkland on campus.
