Oxton House, Kenton - Teignbridge

In the mid-C19 the picturesque grounds comprised lawns, parterres, shrubberies, parkland and a lake. In the C20 the property was occupied by a school before being divided into apartments. The pleasure grounds are neglected and much of the park is ploughed, with considerable loss of parkland planting.
