London Diary – Heughenden Manor, Buckinghamshire

Jun 12, 2020

Hughenden Manor in High Wycome, Buckinghamshire, also a National Trust property, was at one point the residence of former Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli. House not open, but we got to walk around the house, garden and parkland for some exercise and fresh air. The parterre at one end of the handsome house is pretty with colorful blooms, and prospect from east side of house towards the church and valley eastward enchanting, a very English image. Walled garden has a variety of apple trees, including Doctor Harvey (1629) and Blenheim Orange (1740). Multiple bridges stride across a chalk stream through Heughenden Valley. It would be an interesting house to visit and learn about the intriguing history and stories. We should come back when it is open.
