Course Participant

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.
