Old House, The, Silchester

The grounds were at their height of landscape interest in the 20th century when they achieved notoriety for the fine display of rhododendrons and azaleas. There is no evidence of an historically significant designed landscape. The chief historical interest in the house relates to its sometime occupation by Alec Waugh, the novelist and travel-writer of the mid-20th-century. While it occupies a site encircled by areas of national importance for archaeology, nature conservation and history it does not itself command significant importance.
