Didcot House Removals
Located in the south of Oxfordshire is the famous railway and market town of Didcot. The town has been the subject of great investment and development, but despite new houses and amenities springing up throughout the town, it still retains much of its historical charm. Areas around Lydall Road contain much of the architecture of the original small village pre-1974, when it was formerly part of Berkshire. Furthermore, All Saint’s Church stands serenely in the town and dates back to the 11th century.
The Britannia Freestones office is located just 40 minutes away from Didcot, in Brackley. The team offer a second-to-none removals service, tailored to each individual customer, as well as a variety of storage options.
Days Out in Didcot
A must for those with a penchant for trains is a visit to Didcot Railway Centre which is home to an impressive collection of steam locomotives and historical displays. Furthermore, there is an active demonstration train line which allows those who visit to relive the golden age of the train. There are also fantastic ‘steam days’ annually, and special events on during the school holidays and Christmas.
For those who want to enjoy the great outdoors, there is no place better than Milton Manor House. The beautiful 18th century house is set in expansive gardens with two lakes, stables, and enjoyable woodland walks. The horses (and one rogue llama) are free to roam and families are welcome to stroke them. Milton Manor and grounds is a private home with specific opening dates, although it is always open on Sundays for walks around the grounds.
Another day out for those who enjoy a breath of fresh air is Hawkwalk, a falconry facility which allows visitors to get up close and personal with an array of birds of prey. The family owned business have owls, hawks, and eagles that are much loved and have a variety of quirky names. Pancake is a new Red Kite, whereas Fred, Ginger, and Parsnip are the resident Barn Owl family.
