Brief Description

The parkland associated with Turweston House features the River Ouse, a bridge over the river on the north-western approach and a footbridge from the eastern part of the park to an island in the river. The gardens of Turweston House cover about 2 hectares. There are specimen trees, a productive walled garden and a lake with informal woodland walks. The gardens are not open to the public in the normal sense but open rarely for charity.

History
