Detailed Description

Duxford Grange is situated in open, rolling chalk fields, with little tree cover or woodland. The short drives are bordered with alternating beech and yew on raised banks and the garden is laid out formally around a central large lawn. There are fine views to the south through the wrought iron boundary fence. The walled garden lies behind the Grange with herbaceous borders and there is a walk through the Home Plantation. In recent years the beeches have suffered through drought.
