During the long eighteenth century old country houses were remodelled and their grounds turned into grand leisure parks. The designs of Petworth, Uppark and Stansted heralded the arrival of new European influences which continued into the 1820s when severe neo-classical houses were built such as Burton Park. This lecture will trace the development of country houses on the South Downs (many of which still survive and are accessible to the public) during their golden age.
Dr Sue Berry is a historian who has published many articles on Brighton and Sussex in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, as well as a book on Georgian Brighton.
