'One of the most beautiful landscapes in the world': The Nuneham Courtenay Estate 1712 - 2017
|Lecturer: Malcolm Airs|
|Date: December 12th 2017|
|Time: 5.30pm – 6.30pm|
|Place: Rewley House|
The house, the landscaped grounds and the planned village at Nuneham present an idyllic image of eighteenth-century aristocratic taste and power but, like most country estates, its present appearance is the result of a lengthy process of change. This talk will explore the evolution of the estate from its purchase by the Harcourt family to its recent sale by the University of Oxford.
