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

Early C18 garden and pleasure grounds surrounding a 1680s house set within a park landscaped by Lancelot Brown. Interacting with the adjacent River Thames, an eyecatcher stands on Temple Island downstream in Brown's principal vista. The gardens and wooded pleasure grounds have a number of parkland architectural elements linked by paths. Most of the estate and park are in separate ownership with previous development and inappropriate planting also impacting on the parkland structure and designed views There is a need to identify a partnership approach to deliver conservation management.
