Visit to Towhead, Slaidburn
- Townhead visit |
- Private View |
- Friday, 18 March 2016 - 13:45 until 16:30
Townhead is a grade II listed house on the outskirts of the village of Slaidburn. It was built in the early 18th century as a hunting lodge. It was later altered and is a fine, well-proportioned Georgian mansion containing an outstanding example of 18th century plasterwork. It fell into disrepair and was placed on the English Heritage Buildings at Risk register. In the last few years it has undergone an extensive repair and restoration programme. The present owners are pleased to offer a private tour of the house.
The visit will be followed by a tea with Mrs Anthea Hodson, whose family have lived in Slaidburn and hold the title of Lord of the Manor.
Transport is not included. Please assemble by 1.45pm in the Slaidburn Village Car Park beside the Café for the short walk to Townhead.
The tour is limited to 30 places.
This event has been organised by the Lancashire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
