This event will be confirmed once the house and curators give a specific date.

We have organised a Society tour to Stourhead in Wiltshire to view the house and tour the gardens. In the morning we will tour the house with Stourhead expert Dudley Dodd, author of past Stourhead guidebooks as well as a book on the Peretti Cabinet that was bought by Henry Hoare II in 1740 whilst on Grand Tour in Rome. After lunch we will tour the 18th-century English Landscape garden by Society member John Harrison.
