An Afternoon at Rousham
Tuesday 23 May 2017

A chance to visit Rousham House remodelled in the 1730’s by William Kent and to discover its wonderful landscape gardens.
We will have a private tour of the house given by members of the Cotterell-Dormer family, who’s ancestors have been owners of the estate since 1635. Then on to explore the largely unaltered garden, which also was designed by Kent - widely acknowledged as the founder of the English landscape movement. Rousham is one of the earliest and least changed examples, the Gardens being almost as Kent left them in the 18th Century with ponds, cascades, a Cold Bath, the Temple and many other features including fine statues still in situ.
