13 July 2019 to 14 March 2020 - The development of the English Country House
Chertsey Museum’s new exhibition, Home Improvements, looks at the development of the English Country House over the past seven centuries. The exhibition also details the history of some of the local power houses in the Borough of Runnymede
Commenting, Emma Warren, Curator of Chertsey Museum said:
“Mention ‘country houses’ to most people in this country and the chances are they will imagine something along the lines of Downton Abbey, Upstairs Downstairs or Brideshead Revisited - the Victorian and Edwardian golden age of shooting parties and croquet on the lawn. The country house was more than a place of entertainment; it was a symbol of power, a tangible display of strength, wealth and importance”.
Among the properties featured in the exhibition are Sayes Court in Addlestone, Botleys Park in Chertsey, Great Fosters in Egham, Almers Priory in Lyne and Ottershaw Park in Ottershaw.
The exhibition will be on view until 14 March 2020.
