Visit | Madresfield Court
Thursday 16 June 2011 - 10:30 until 17:00
An opportunity to visit Madresfield Court, the ancestral home of the Lygon family. The house contains outstanding collections of furniture, pictures, porcelain and objets dâ€™art, and a wonderful library designed by C.R. Ashbee. It is particularly a centre of the Arts and Crafts movement. The Lygon family and house were inspiration for Evelyn Waugh's novel, Brideshead Revisited, as Waugh was a guest as Madresfield on many occasions.
There will be a sandwich lunch before an afternoon visit to the house.
