Baldon House

Previous - Next

Baldon House, opposite Nuneham Courtenay, was, in 1804, a residence of some note, and it has still in the grounds many of the elements of a fine place; such as abundance of wood, and a surface varied by undulations, with a good soil for pasture and trees. The plantations are much in want of thinning. By judiciously managing the fences of both parks which border the road, the one park might be made to lend great effect to the other.
