Event Details

£3 members, £5 non-members

The ornamental dairy designed by James Wyatt for the 4th  Earl & Countess of Darnley in 1794-5 provides a fascinating case study of this charming building type, as well as a rare example of various technical innovations championed by the Wyatts in the late-Georgian period, including sanded slate cladding, painted glass, patent roofing and Gothick plasterwork. This talk will examine what the Dairy reveals about the close family networks that enabled such a project, and the twentyfirst-century craft skills required to recover it from dereliction during restoration. 

Caroline Stanford has been Historian for the Landmark Trust since 2001, researching their historic buildings and feeding into all aspects of their restoration.  

The talks starts at 6.30pm. Joining details will be sent to attendees the day before.
