Join us in June for a richly illustrated webinar on the country houses of Shropshire! One of the largest counties in England, Shropshire is full of luscious and history-drenched country houses, many of them unknown outside of this stunning part of the country. Presented by Gareth Williams, historian, curator and Shropshire native, this lecture will take us from the grand and noble to the modest and livable, punctuated with stories of great art collections, people who changed the world, and Shropshire children who left England on the Mayflower. Gareth’s seminal and groundbreaking book, The Country Houses of Shropshire, anticipated to be an important resource for historians and genealogists, will be published by Boydell Press in June.
