VISIT TO CORSHAM COURT, WILTS

BOOK AT SEPTEMBER LECTURE

THURSDAY 20 SEPTEMBER 2018

Corsham is the stately and beautiful home of Lord Methuen.  His ancestor, diplomat  Sir Paul Methuen travelled widely in Europe collecting works of art. The Elizabethan E plan house (1582) was made over by Nathaniel Ireson into Palladian style in 1747, but only 13 years later Sir Paul called in Capability Brown to improve house and garden, creating a gallery for the art collection.  In 1795  John Nash made “ improvements”.  In 1884 Thos Bellamy remodelled the North front returning it to its Elizabethan origins.  The collection includes works by Van Dyck, Michaelangelo, Reynolds, Italian, Dutch ,French and Flemish masters, ceramics, furniture.  Extensive gardens have a lake, fine trees, lilly pond, marvellous follies, and peacocks.   Traffic permitting we will stop for coffee in beautiful Marlborough High Street .  Lunch  (included) has been arranged at La Piccolo Italia in Corsham, which is opening  especially for us.
