Houses of the Cotswolds - An Evening with Jeremy Musson on 22nd February



Jeremy Musson will fascinate attendees with his lecture detailing some of the UK’s most beguiling Cotswold country houses from this much-loved area of western England, including Stanway, Daneway and Owlpen Manor. These houses featured in his recent book on the subject, illustrated with photographs taken by Cotswolds-based photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas. These attractive stone-built houses, set in the rolling landscape of the Cotswolds, with its hidden valleys, have become something of an English ideal. Several of these houses have important associations with the Arts and Crafts movement, and each has their own story to tell.

Jeremy Musson is a Cambridge-based architectural historian and consultant, Country Life contributor, tv presenter and author of many books on the English country house.

The lecture will take place at at 6:30pm at Olympia Auctions.  All tickets include a glass of wine and light snacks. Doors open at 6pm.

This talk was organised by Emery Walker's House with the venue and wine donated by Olympia Auctions. Emery Walker's House was the home of noted Typographer and Antiquarian Emery Walker and his family (his wife Mary Grace and daughter Dorothy) from 1903. The house survives as decorated for Walker and his family, using wallpapers, textiles and furniture made by William Morris’ firm and other leading members of the Arts & Crafts Movement. The House is managed by The Emery Walker Trust which was formed and took possession of the House in 1999- they are charity whose mission is to maintain and display the house as well as promote and advance the study and appreciation of the Arts & Crafts Movement. 

Emery Walker's House is open from March to November for pre-booked tours on Thursdays and Saturdays. For more information, please visit the Emery Walker's House website:
