Fawley Court conservation area

Fawley Court lies north of Henley on the banks of the River Thames. Designated a conservation area in 1992, it comprises an early 18th century garden and pleasure grounds, surrounding a Grade I listed 1680's house reputed to have been designed by Christopher Wren. The house is of redbrick with stone quoining. The park was landscaped in the 1770s by Capability Brown, with 19th and 20th century additions and planting. There are a number of garden buildings which are listed separately. The house passed into the hands of the Marian Fathers after the 2nd World War and became a religious seminary. Additional 20th century buildings have been constructed on the site. There are 12 listed buildings or structures on the site.
