Actually, looking at NT land near me is pretty interesting - what is
included and what is excluded is an odd combination:
(and compare with http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/331912832 which is
the observable, mostly accessible Hardwick Park).
The GreenSpace dataset contains a number of fields that were
historically part of Hardwick Park, are still owned by NT but aren't
publicly accessible. It also includes some NT-owned fields that have
never in my lifetime been part of Hardwick Park (but may have been
before), and also a private pub car park, but doesn't include some
adjacent NT-owned fields that were historically part of the same
estate. It excludes new park access roads, so must have been updated
fairly recently, and also excludes a farm access track through the
estate, but not the farmyard.
It's such an odd mixture that if I were a data consumer of it I'd be
very reluctant to use it without combining it with something else to
sanity check it. It's great for finding "hidden allotments" though -
for example I'd never noticed
https://raggedred.net/greenspace/#19/53.16869/-1.43609 before, and will
now need to have a look to see what it actually is.
