    The grounds are full of japanese knot weed an invasive huge weed that is hard to get rid of, the field to the left is a land fill site and has methane gas outlets. The big house was used for offices for drinkwater sabey then sita. The small lodge was occupied by the groundsman and family and is now derelict. when the company moved out the building and grounds had no security and was occupied by travellers and much mess was left behind and graffitti and damage to the m=small grain house which is now gone. or at least partially gone. The barn was also destroyed and the old farm house was for many years occupied by a tramp of sorts who would walk around the area and has left small drawings of naked lady inside the farmhouse itself. There is an old garage and shed building to the back which used to house the tractors and equipment used by the groundsman to maintain the grass , which he did extremely well . The grounds are now in a bad way and the bind weed is taking over. The main house has a cellar which is flooded with water. In summer many rabbits and deer are in the field as well as foxes and owls. As for who used to live there before the house became part of Drinkwater sabey I have no idea. There is a protected tree outside the main house which is in a picture which used to hang on the wall of the house. The grounds also has acer trees and many daffodills and bluebells in the spring. There used to be a well maintained rose bed in the car park. The small Lodge house used to have well clipped hedges and neat striped lawn and a swing on the tree at the back. The ground floods from nearby ditches. The neighbouring property have pigs. and accross the road is a nature reserve which has cattle roaming free occasionally and fires do break out in the hot dry heather ground. There is a public footpath running round the property to the left but the drive itself is private.

    Didn't Pickeridge Farm once have a connection with the Caldecourt family, of Tom's Super Stores fame?

    Am many years away from Stoke Poges so my memory is hazy.

    Used to roam the Common as a boy.
