The Long Sunset: the Country House c 1840–1940

21 October 2017
Lewes

This is the final conference in our series on the country house, which we started in 2009. Many changes to country house life took place in the century from 1840, and our conference will explore some of these with expert speakers on such topics as the long weekend, the gardens and the plant collectors who contributed to them, the introduction of the Arts and Crafts style country home, innovative technology and the role that Americans played in sustaining and developing the English country house.
