In this talk, Jeremy Musson, one of Britain’s leading architectural historians, will offer a fresh look at the significance and meaning of Britain’s finest and most important historic homes. He will explore not only the essential skills necessary to build a country house and the aesthetic prestige embedded in their decoration and furnishing but also the state of the country house today and what the future holds for this iconic feature of British culture.
