The Splendour! Art in Living Craftsmanship publication is not only a catalogue for the once- in-a-decade exhibition celebrating the 80th anniversary of The Georgian Group, but is also a valuable resource as a directory of craftsmen who help look after Georgian buildings using traditional methods.

The catalogue is edited by the historian and exhibition Curator John Martin Robinson and Adam Busiakiewicz and includes a collection of essays examining the current role of traditional crafts in Britain.  Contributors include, Sandy Stoddart (the Queen's Sculptor in Ordinary in Scotland), Hugh Petter (Partner in Adam Architecture), Christopher Boyle QC (The Georgian Group chairman), David McKinstry (architectural historian and The Georgian Group Secretary) and Tim Crawley (Head of Historic Carving at City & Guilds of London Art School).

Squerryes Court: was built 1681–5 for Sir Nicholas Crisp, 2nd Bt, and bought 1700 by the Earls of Jersey who sold it 1731 to John Warde. His descendant Henry Warde now lives there with his family. An archetypal late C17 Grade I red-brick manor house, hardly altered externally. The house nestles half-way down a slope on the greensand ridge, providing good growing conditions for abundant azaleas and rhododendrons. William III visited in 1701 and part of thegarden has been restored in the Anglo-Dutch style using early C18 plans. The Squerryes vineyard has recently won top national awards for its sparkling wine. Titsey Place: Sir John Gresham (Lord Mayor,uncle of Sir Thomas Gresham, Founder of the Royal Exchange and Chancellor to Elizabeth I) bought Titsey in 1534. Sir John, 6th Bt made a propitious marriage, and in the 1770s rebuilt the house. In 1831–2 the Georgian house was roughcast and some Gothic elements.

Our Aims and Purpose

The Georgian Group is the national charity dedicated to preserving Georgian buildings and gardens. We were founded in 1937.  

We aim to protect historic buildings through providing advice to owners and architects, campaigning, and through our role as statutory consultees in the planning system. Our annual awards promote excellence in design and conservation. In its casework, the Georgian Group advises councils, church bodies, and others on threats to the historic fabric and setting of structures built between 1700 and 1840.

The Group organises lectures and other events aimed at improving the understanding of aspects of the eighteenth and early nineteenth century built heritage.  We also produce technical advice leaflets, and promote the publication of academic research through our journal.
