This event has passed.
Bayham Abbey 1871

This is the final conference in our series on the country house, which we started in 2009. Many changes to country house life took place in the century from 1840, and our conference will explore some of these with expert speakers on such topics as the long weekend, the gardens and the plant collectors who contributed to them, the introduction of the Arts and Crafts style country home, innovative technology and the role that Americans played in sustaining and developing the English country house. The full programme is available here.

This conference is now fully booked. If you would like to be added to our waiting list, please contact me. You must include a daytime telephone number or an email address which you check frequently.
