February 25, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
An illustrated tour of our rich and much-loved heritage of Arts and Crafts architecture, showing how though its zenith was actually short-lived it was influential in subsequent Lake District building design. The talk will explore why this happened in the Lake District and will also illustrate the decorative arts and garden design.
