The Society was established in the 1970s. It aims to encourage the study and enjoyment of architecture, buildings, their contents and settings by organising lectures and visits. It usually holds its lectures in the Fine Art Lecture Theatre, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, and enjoys a close association with the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape of Newcastle University.

Brampton, Cumbria
An Architectural Walking Tour

Two images: St Martin's church and market stalls

St Martin's Brampton, by Philip Webb - Brampton Market

Our next event is an excursion to the fascinating and lively Cumbrian market town of Brampton. We will spend the day guided by Lily Hopkins, who grew up in the town, is a town and country planner, past chair of the Carlisle Diocesan Advisory Committee and church warden of St Martin's.

The parish church's architect Philip Webb designed two other buildings in this town. In the outskirts we may glimpse a post war domestic work by Sir Leslie Martin and what might be the oldest church in Cumbria.

The walk commences at 11.00 am; break times and suggestions for a self-catered lunch will be confirmed; ending at 5.00 pm. Travel will be by car and every effort will be made to arrange lifts.
