Wednesday 19 September: Oxfordshire Country Visit


Milton Manor and Wick Hall


Milton Manor is a mid seventeenth-century house in the early Anglo-Palladian manner with surprisingly contextual wings of 1776. The dignified severity of the exterior belies the charm and eccentricity of the interior, which contains a Georgian ‘gothick’ library and chapel as well as Restoration interiors and an unusually early use of a central corridor, repeated on each floor.


Wick Hall, near Abingdon, was built around 1720 in the early Georgian style with later extensions designed by Charles Bell in Queen Anne style added in the nineteenth century. It has an interesting interior incorporating not only the original 1720s fabric but also early seventeenth-century Flemish panelling removed from Exeter College Chapel, Oxford. The house was built as Wick Farm by the Tomkins family, who were maltsters and builders.
