FHS STUDY DAY - MILTON HALL

Tuesday, 3 September 2019 10.30am - 4pm Milton Hall, Milton Park, Peterborough PE3 9HD

Milton Hall was the principal seat of the Earls Fitzwilliam until 1782, when the 4th Earl inherited Wentworth Woodhouse.  With a late 16th century core, it was transformed externally and internally by Henry Flitcroft between 1745 and 1750, and Sir William Chambers in 1773.  It retains much outstanding (and some intriguing) furniture, mainly but not exclusively English, spanning the later 17th to the early 19th century, in lacquer, giltwood, marquetry and more.  Makers' and designers' names to conjure with include James Moore, Matthias Lock and Wright & Elqick.

This Study Day will be led by Lucy Wood and Mia Jackson.

COST: £65 (including lunch)

LIMIT:  20
