Wednesday 15 January 2019

Organiser: Hugh Dixon

Landscape at Gillingwood Hall

Landscape at Gillingwood Hall, North Yorkshire.

The evening was devoted to short talks giving members an opportunity to address favourite subjects, share enthusiasms, outline early research or simply fly architectural-historical kites.

Topics ranged from the 18th century to our own times, from vernacular to highly formal and to the unexpected. The talks were, in order:

  • Dr Richard Pears, The Gillingwood Mysteries
  • Denis Peel, Stephenson's Cottage: Purpose and Location
  • Leslie Starkie, Two historic buildings in Wellington, New Zealand
  • Dr Michael Johnson, Ironopolis: The Architecture of Middlesbrough
