Adderbury House

Introduction

Adderbury House dates from the 17th century; the gardens were altered through the 18th and 19th centuries, the park being landscaped by Lancelot Brown in about 1768. In the 20th century part of the park, including the lakes, was given to Oxfordshire County Council as a public park for the village. The house, which had been a care home for the elderly, is once more in private hands, with part of the original grounds.
