    Surrounded by trees and hedgerows, Drayton Road is a new development located on the southern edge of the lovely market town of Abingdon.

    Abingdon has a rich and interesting history, being one of several places that claims to be one of Britain's oldest continuously occupied towns, with people having lived there for at least 6,000 years. The town's Monday market has existed since 1556. Now known as the Ock Fair, The Michaelmas Fair was originally a 'hiring mart' for people looking for employment.

    The beauty of Abingdon lies in being able to enjoy all its history and character, while still having the convenience of all the amenities you need close at hand. For the weekly shop, you can choose from Waitrose or The Co-operative both within 1.5 miles from Drayton Road and other supermarkets a little further from home. For all your retail therapy needs, visit The Orchard Centre and the Clarendon Centre, both less than 10 miles from your door and both offering high street names and plenty of places to eat or grab a coffee. There is a lovely selection of pubs and restaurants in the town, so there's plenty of choice when it comes to finding somewhere to enjoy a drink or an evening meal.

    When it comes to travel, you are well placed, be it journeys by road, rail or air. Didcot Parkway is less than 7 miles from your door, Oxford bus station for coach travel less than 10 miles away and for journeys further afield, London Heathrow Airport just under 50 miles from home.

    For the sporting among you, Abingdon Rugby club, Oxford United Football club and a number of golf courses can all be found within 10 miles of Drayton Road. If you're looking to keep fit, Fitness in Time Gym is less than 2 miles away.

    There is an excellent choice of schools for all ages in the area, with both a pre-school and primary school less than half a mile away. Abingdon & Witney College is under 2 miles from home and the University of Oxford is less than 9 miles from your door.

    So if you're looking for a location with plenty of history, character and connections, Drayton Road could well be the destination for you.

    Snippet: Before Trinity Church was built the tallest spire in Abingdon was that of St. Helen's church. Trinity deliberately made their spire a little bit taller.

    Supporting the local community

    Taylor Wimpey is making a significant investment in the local community as part of the Morland Gardens development through a planning agreement with Vale of White Horse District Council.

    Under the Section 106 agreement, approximately £750,000 has gone towards school and library upgrades, £300,000 on sports and leisure facilities, £220,000 towards highway improvements and £80,000 to improve the bus services. All this is part of our continuing commitment to improving the communities where we build.

    What's happening when?

    Planning consent for Morland Gardens was granted on 7th September 2015 and initial works to prepare for construction took place at the site off Drayton Road the end of November 2015.

    We are looking forward to welcoming our first residents into their new homes later this year with work at the development due to take 30 months to complete.

    House-hunters choosing a brand new home at Morland Gardens can be sure of receiving exceptional customer service as well as a stunning high-quality property!

    Our Sales Executive Rob Pavely will be on hand to help customers with the whole home-buying process, from the moment they first get in touch until they’re settled in their dream home – and beyond.

    Meanwhile, our experienced Site Manager Gary Price brings attention to detail and commitment to quality to his role overseeing construction of the new homes.

    Every new Taylor Wimpey home is completed to an exceptionally high standard, with the added reassurance of a two-year guarantee from the housebuilder as well as a 10-year warranty from the National House-Building Council (NHBC).

    Improving local infrastructure

    As part of the planning consent for our new development off Drayton Road, we will be providing improvements to local infrastructure.

    This includes the Ock Street/Marcham Road crossing, which is already in place and working, the signalised junction at the site entrance, which is currently being installed and will be commissioned prior to occupation, and the existing roundabout between Colwell Drive and Marcham Road, which will be widened prior to the 10th occupation.
