Halton House, Halton / Aston Clinton - Buckinghamshire (UA)

Another of the original seven Rothschild country houses in the Aylesbury Vale with late C19 formal gardens and park with woodland rides. Sold to the Royal Air Force in 1918 the house is now the Officers' Mess to RAF Halton. Bisected by a disused arm of the Grand Union Canal much of the open parkland has been fragmented and lost to development of the camp with the historic fabric of the ornamental features of the garden in poor condition.The overall woodland structure survives managed by the Forestry Commission. A Conservation Management Plan has been written to guide future proposals.
