Country Houses of the New Forest and Test Valley by Frank Green
Tuesday 3 March 2020 at 7.30 pm in Emery Down and Bank Village Hall (SO43 7EB)
We will look at a range of historic houses from the earliest, with no known builder or designer, to grand houses designed by named architects; set in managed landscapes with formally designed gardens.
Frank Green has worked in Hampshire since the mid-1970s as an archaeologist with particular interests in environmental archaeology and also historic buildings. He helped establish the Hampshire Field Club and Archaeological Societies historic buildings section and until recently was a committee member of the Buildings Archaeology group of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists. He is also a member of the Winchester Diocesan Advisory Committee for the care of churches. Until October 2019 when he retired, he was the first professional archaeologist appointed by the New Forest National Park Authority.
Entrance: £4 on the door. Refreshments available.
Event organised by ‘How We Used To Live’, the local history group for Allum Green, Bank, Emery Down and Gritnam.
