The History of the English Country House from Reformation to Restoration – GI 19 578
18 November 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Monday, repeating until 9 December 2019
Tutor: Jenny Frendo BAGo to all Courses
The course will explore, not the architecture, but the changing function of the country house and its place in the community. Grand houses were built to show wealth and status while landlords looked for profit from enclosed land and entrepreneurial activities. Country house visiting was, and still is, a fashionable pastime and a deeper understanding of their place in history will enhance our enjoyment of visiting these great houses today.
