ONLINE TALK: The Country House Gate Lodge

Country houses are often hidden from view at the centre of their estates and it is the gate lodge by the public road which announces their presence. So the gate lodge stands in for the house, and in its architecture provides an advertisement for the taste of the owner. The result is a set of small buildings with big architectural pretensions, from the serious to the entirely fanciful, giving a fascinating insight into the tastes of the last 200 years.

James Holden’s talk will trace this story, plentifully illustrated with examples from Wiltshire, a county which contains some of the finest gate lodges in the country.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the talk.
