A huge plan for 200 houses has been submitted for land at Bridge Farm in Twyford.

The scheme would see the houses built around the existing Orchard House, which was built to replace Bridge Farm and will be retained.

During this time, six major farm buildings would be demolished and the houses built on the farmland itself.

The site is bounded by the River Loddon to the west.

Developers Croudace Homes are seeking approval of the outline of the plan, with all matters reserved except access to the site, which will be in the form of a roundabout from New Bath Road.

The rest of the details will be brought to council at a later date, should Croudace Homes receive outline approval.

The council’s public consultation on the plan will continue until September 16. You can see more photos of the plan in the gallery above.

The developers asked to tear down the buildings of Winkfield Manor and replace them with 18 houses.

The houses of the manor are currently deserted. The mansion was damaged in a fire in April last year, with Thames Valley Police suspecting arson.

The adjoining cottages on the grounds were also deemed uninhabitable, but there is also a modern tenement on the site.

The proposals involve the construction of a replacement mansion, a caretaker’s house, two “stable blocks” of houses and a “new barn”.

In total, there will be 15 three-bedroom houses, two two-bedroom houses and the four-bedroom mansion.
