Cotswold Country Houses

Gordon Russell Design Museum, Broadway
27 October 2023

Jeremy Musson, architectural historian and country house specialist, explores the stories of some of the Cotswolds country houses which he has written about for Country Life and for his 2018 book Secret Houses of the Cotswolds, a collaboration with photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas, published, by Frances Lincoln. The houses range from stately Stanway House to classical Upton House; the lecture will include some reference to Kelmscott Manor for which he recently wrote the new guidebook.

Mr Musson was born in London, and grew up in Surrey. After a law degree and an MPhil in renaissance history and art history, he worked for the Victorian Society and the National Trust before joining Country Life magazine, where he was architectural editor in 1998-2007, specialising in the history of the English country house. He has written numerous books on different aspects of this subject, and alongside work as a heritage and design consultant, he also teaches on courses at the University of Cambridge and New York University's London programme. He is a trustee of the Historic Houses Foundation.
