Turn End is a RIBA award winning group of three houses and a listed garden in the wychert village of Haddenham (Bucks), designed by architect Peter Aldington, OBE. It is widely regarded as one of the finest examples of post-war housing design. Aldington, an architect and plantsman, is renowned for his ethos of linking building to landscape; house to garden; inside to outside. In November 2017, Historic England listed Turn End’s garden at Grade II and added it to the Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England. At that time Turn End was the only post-war listed house and garden created by the same hand. Peter’s work has brought him the greatest number of listed buildings of any living architect and led to awards and extensive publicity. Visitors come from across the UK, Europe and around the world, many having become architects or landscape designers as a result of listening to Peter or seeing his work.

Turn End Trust was established in 1998 to promote the integration of building and garden design; enable public access to this and other examples; and; after bequest by the Aldingtons, to conserve and maintain Turn End, its garden and associated buildings. The Trust hosts a number of public events relating to aspects of the house and garden. The Trust also has a Friends Scheme, aiming to increase opportunities for public appreciation of the site, and to create networks of supporters and volunteers across the community to carry it into the future.
