This was the second lecture in the above theme at Burton Agnes Hall, that wonderful example of an Elizabethan country house near Driffield. It’s very close to Bridlington and Scarborough and York. The next talk in the series will be on Wednesday 1st September 2010 in the library. If you’re in the area, why not join me.
September is also the 400th anniversary of the completion of the Hall. And it’s been in the same family all that time. The gatehouse is spectacularly Elizabethan and the plasterwork is fantastic in the Great Hall. Well worth a visit.
