Visit: Holkham Model Farms -Modern Conversions and Past Achievements
- Holkham |
The agricultural revolution was well under way in the late 18th century whent he Holkham estate, one of the leaders in reform, commissioned a number of spectacular buildings from the architect Samuel Wyatt, including the Great Shearing Barn and the Triumphal Arch, together with at least six model farms. The farms convert into very attractive modern homes and architect Nicholas Hills, who was responsible for converting the model farm that is now the home of Lord and Lady Leicester, will be a guide for the day. Robin Ellis will also show his working farm at Wellingham, which, though not by Wyatt, dates from the same era and resembles a model farm.
