‘At the Expense of the Enemies of his Country’ – The Boscawens and Hatchlands Park (T248)
11 March 2020 @ 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm GMT
Speaker: Brian Lavery
Admiral Edward Boscawen was one of the greatest naval commanders of the mid-18th century. It is reported that Boscawen and his wife saw Hatchlands on the way to Portsmouth and eventually purchased it with a plan to rebuild the house. They employed the up and coming Robert Adam to design much of the interior, thus giving a start to perhaps the greatest architect of the century.
