Professor Malcolm Airs will talk about: ‘Nuneham Courtenay – the most beautiful landscape in the world’
This talk will explore the chequered fortunes of the Nuneham estate from its creation in 1712 down to its recent sale in 2017. It is a fascinating story which covers the mansion, the landscaped park and the planned village and features a wide range of characters including monarchs, statesmen, philosophers, poets, painters, peasants and exotic animals.
The talk originally scheduled for this month, ‘Up the street: the history of pubs, shops and businesses in Dorchester’, by Margot Metcalfe and Denise Line, will now be given in March 2019.
Looking forward, the talk on October 24th will be by Lisa Walker on ‘A history of women’s rowing in Oxford’.
Visitors and new members are always very welcome to our talks and outings.
Margot Metcalfe, Chairman
