Lying close to Twyford Church is Grange Farm, a handsome brick house with pleasure garden in front, and farm buildings grouped round in three yards. The present farmhouse is the oldest part of the complex, consisting of a five-bay three-storey house dating from the mid 18th century, built as a gentleman's residence, perhaps for the incumbent of the parish church, and an adjoining two-bay house of a similar date. A map of 1842 suggests that at that time it was two farms, not one, and it is not certain when the two were combined. The next oldest building is the barn, the other farm buildings dating to later in the 19th century. (1)
