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 century, as well as a book on Georian Brighton.

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

Cost: £5
