Fawley Court and Temple Island, Fawley / Henley-on-Thames / Remenham / Bix and Assendon - Wycombe / South Oxfordshire / Wokingham (UA)

Early C18 garden and pleasure grounds surrounding a 1680s house set within a park landscaped by Lancelot Brown. Most of the estate and park are in separate ownership with previous development and inappropriate planting impacting on the structure of the park. There is a need to monitor as appropriate and re-engage to identify and agree a partnership approach to a strategy for improvement.
