Tim Henman and Traffic

From the Daily Mail:
Former tennis star Tim Henman has clashed with his neighbours after gaining permission to demolish a 17th-century cottage and replace it with a gym. 
Henman, who turns 37 today, has won planning permission to knock down the building in the grounds of his £2million country house. 
He plans to build an annexe to the main house at his estate in Aston Tirrold, near Didcot in Oxfordshire, which will include accommodation and a state-of-the-art gym.
And why is that story of interest to this blog? Because Aston Tirrold is the nearest village to the cottage where Traffic famously "got it together in the country", that's why.

It also has oblique connections with John Masefield.
