Nuneham Park is the Thameside grounds belonging to the Palladian Nuneham House. The park was requisitioned in World War 2, and part of it has since become the Harcourt Arboretum of Oxford University. The original village of Nuneham Courtenay was forcibly relocated in 1760 by the lord of the manor, because the old medieval buildings spoiled the view from the house.
