Discover the Berkshire town of Buscot. The Thames passes through the village, scarcely more than just a creek and fringed by willows; close, the old rectory and the church contribute to the attractiveness. A Norman chancel arch, a 17th century Spanish wooden lectem, two Burne Jones windows, and monuments to the Loveden family, who previously owned Buscot Park, can all be found in the church.
Edward Loveden Townsend built the house, which is open to the public, in the Adam style shortly before 1780. It was later changed, but Lord Faringdon demolished the Victorian extensions and returned the interior to its original state. It has high ceilings, beautiful furnishings (mainly Regency), and amazing artwork. The collection contains works by Italian, Flemish, Dutch, and Spanish painters, as well as English school representatives such as Gainsborough, Lawrence, and others. Burne Jones created a stunning series of prints depicting the legend of the Sleeping Princess, which are still in their original elaborate frames.
The park's lake was sculpted in the 18th century, and Harold Peto designed the Italianate water gardens with fountains, waterfalls, and statuary in the 20th century. But now the National Trust owns everything, including the house, Buscot village, and 3,863 acres of farmland and woodland, as well as Buscot Old Parsonage. It was erected in stone in 1703 and can be viewed on occasion provided a written request is made.
