Event details

Tuesday, May 21st  at 11.00am

Wootton Manor is listed in Doomesday and parts of the existing Manor and surrounding buildings date from the 17th century. Of particular interest to SPAB members will be the very extensive 1915 restoration and expansion carried out by the Arts and Crafts architect Detmar Blow, a close associate of William Morris. Archaeologist and historian Sabrina Harcourt-Smith, whose family have occupied the Manor since 1876, will give a talk to the group.   Coffee and biscuits and a buffet lunch will be provided by Sabrina.

The cost of the visit is £10. 

About the Sussex Regional Group

The  Sussex Group is run by a committee of five, with Simon Clark as main organiser and Ashley Brown, Duncan Philips, Bob Overton-Hart and Jonathan Cerowski all also organising events and performing various roles. The current committee has by and large served since 2014, and all live in Sussex but liberally spread across both West and East. The Group’s approach is to put on an event monthly between Easter and autumn each year.
