Event Description: 

In this illustrated talk by Dr. Gerald Hull and his wife Margaret reference will be made to the Grand Tour and the social-intellectual contexts for the changes within garden landscaping which developed throughout the century. The lecture will focus on landowners and aristocracy and the developing role of women in shell house and grotto design, including the Earl of Shaftesbury, the Goldneys, Ralph Allen, the Beckfords, Mary Delany, Lady Hertford and Charles Hamilton. There will be a careful examination of various locations in Bath and the West Country, including Prior Park and Bowood House.
