Event description

Description

Dianne Long will explore the landscapes of eighteenth century industrialists, whose gardens have attracted little attention compared with those of the landed gentry and aristocracy. Proximity to their industrial activity was crucial for such entrepreneurs, especially in the initial growth period, but what influenced the development of their pleasure landscapes alongside the productive, did the two interact in any way and was there anything distinctive in what they created? Dianne will discuss these themes with particular reference to the Midlands and ceramic manufacturers in Staffordshire.

Doors open at 6.30pm, complimentary glass of wine/soft drink and the lecture starts at 7pm.
