SP3921 : Ditchley

near to Over Kiddington, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

Work on Ditchley started around 1720, replacing a timber house which had once hosted an entertainment for Queen Elizabeth I in 1592. The current mansion was designed by James Gibb in the Palladian style, and takes up three pages of the Pevsner guide to Oxfordshire. It is home to the Ditchley Foundations LinkExternal link and hosts high-powered conferences on international affairs. At other times, the house is open to bookings for groups of visitors. Rights of way go near, but not right up, to the house. Its grounds, Ditchley Park, are mostly woodland and fields rather than formal gardens, but one exception is the avenue of trees to the south-east: SP3920 : Avenue of trees leading to Ditchley
