Sunday Lecture – The Gothic Revival in the West Country 1836-1901
The Gothic Revival in the West Country 1836-1901, from such great mansions as Knightshayes Court to Tyntesfield, from pumping stations to railway stations, the Gothic Revival can be seen to have spread its tentacles far and wide across the whole region. Such was the demand that besides the great national architects, many regional firms and family dynasties flourished. In this way a special regionality would appear and result in further creating a visual identity for the region.
Pre-booked carvery lunch available £18 per person.
