Aviary at Dropmore House, Heathfield Road, Taplow - South Bucks

Aviary, early C19, situated on south side of range of buildings to west of the house. Previously vulnerable to heritage crime and longstanding lack of regular maintenance. Situated within late C18 to early C19 gardens. Mansion converted into residential use. Restoration of the gardens in progress and repairs to the aviary by a specialist blacksmith were on site to complete the structural repairs needed to the frame of the cage structure. Historic England is due to visit as the repairs are now reported as complete.
