Halton House, Halton / Aston Clinton - Aylesbury Vale

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 Halton House is now the Officers' Mess to RAF Halton. Bisected by the Grand Union Canal the park has been extensively curtailed by development of Halton camp with the historic fabric of the ornamental features of the garden in poor condition affecting its values.The Forestry Commission manages the woodland rides and a Conservation Management Plan has been written to guide future proposal.
