St Giles' House
Wed 17 May 2017, 10:30 – 12:30 BST
St Giles' House, located on the Shaftesbury Estate at Wimborne St Giles is the ancestral home of the Ashley-Cooper family, Earls of Shaftesbury, and has been their home since 1651. The building of the house was influenced by the style of Inigo Jones.
In recent years the house and grounds have undergone extensive restoration to their former condition by the current Earl, Nicholas Ashley–Cooper, who will give us a tour of the house
