‘In the Garden And Behind Closed Doors’
Part VI: The Inscape Country House In-Depth Series
SUNDAY 2 – THURSDAY 4 JUNE 2019
A barely altered Elizabethan/Jacobean house idyllically set in the heart of an ancient deer park with densely planted gardens; exclusive presentations by the Heads of the departments charged with the care and maintenance of the House to include the curatorial staff, the archival staff, and the garden and grounds staff; direct tuition in situ provided by the experts entrusted with the care and upkeep of Parham’s buildings and grounds, and contents; a highlight of Parham architecture is the floor to ceiling paned glass walls in the Great Hall- a ground-breaking, life-enhancing architectural achievement; the finest collection of historic needlework outside London; a most capable and welcoming Staff.
