Exploring the most Picturesque & Historic parts of England
Britwell House is a private house available for Weddings etc. Dating from 1728, it is Grade II listed. The house was built for Sir Edward Simeon, a director of the Bank of England. The Obelisk in the grounds was erected by Sir Edward Simeon as a monument to his parents. The Ridgeway National Trail runs above the house (from where this shot was taken, the house is just over a mile away).

A fine photo and a stunning view
Thank you, Chris and Sarah, for your kind comments. Yes, the view can be stunning looking over the Oxfordshire plain from here. If one takes different viewing angle (a few degrees east of this view) it is usually possible to see the 'Dreaming Spires' of Oxford (about 14 miles away), also the TV mast at Beckley and the windmill at Wheatley on a clear day.
