Aldby Park is an interesting early Georgian house built in 1726 for John Brewster. Although there was a serious fire in 1999, the building was saved, as was the famous painting of the Darley Arabian, which hung and still hangs in the entrance hall. We will have a tour of the house and grounds followed by tea. The gardens, overlooking the River Derwent, were laid out 1743-46 by Thomas Knowlton, the gardener at Londesborough to Lord Burlington, and reputedly lie on the site of the Saxon palace of King Edwin. This visit is a repeat of the oversubscribed one in May 2010.
