A very special opportunity to visit 2 houses on the Turn End estate designed and built by architect Peter Aldington, OBE.

About this event

A very special opportunity to visit 2 houses on the Turn End estate. Turn End and Middle Turn have a similar plan around a courtyard garden and the same simple and honest use of materials with quarry tiled floor, exposed timber beams and white painted blockwork, but they all enable much personal creativity and individual expression by the occupants in terms of decoration and use of the living spaces. Explore Turn End's own Grade II listed garden and visit the studios of Artist in Residence Heather Hunter and Paul Wilkinson Photography, both located on the Turn End estate. Teas and homemade cakes. Books and home-grown plants for sale.

The film, Turn End – the Home and Garden of Architect Peter Aldington, by film director Murray Grigor, OBE and Director of Photography, Hamid Shams, is available on DVD (£17.50 including p&p) and well worth a watch before visiting Turn End. It tells the story of the creation of the group of three houses and garden. Filmed through all four seasons, Turn End captures how architect Peter Aldington masterly designed the houses and garden as one, making the garden a natural extension to the house. It goes right to the heart of the controversy of what is desirable housing development in country villages. Available to buy here: https://www.turnend.org.uk/shop/turn-end-the-film-dvd

PARKING - We are located in the historic centre of Haddenham, on a narrow residential road. There is free, but very limited on-street parking on Townside and surrounding roads.

If you are able, please park elsewhere in the village and enjoy walking through Haddenham to visit us. Please park on wider roads and keep clear of driveways - thank you!
