Upcoming Events At This Venue
April 29, 2017
The impact of changes in how our forebears worshipped, in the architectural styles used for churches, in preferences for different layouts and interior features have left their mark on our parish churches. So have political decisions such as the English Reformation, begun by King Henry VIII. Every church is unique and many are repositories of the work of outstanding craftsmen, often unknown. The history of the churches as buildings is not explored very often and we hope that this conference and the programme of related events we hope to organise will encourage further interest in and appreciation of these buildings.
The conference leaflet contains a full programme.
N.B. This event is now sold out. Please contact me or call 01273 405737 if you would like to be added to the waiting list.

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 and the role that Americans played in sustaining and developing the English country house.
The full programme is available here, and you can book online (below), by post or by phone (details on the leaflet). If you are applying for a student ticket, you must supply a student number & details of the course you are studying.
