’God’s House at Ewelme’ - a TWHAS talk
Dr John Goodall, FSA, Architectural Editor of Country Life magazine, will talk to The Wallingford Historical and Archaeological Society (TWHAS) about God's House at Ewelme. He wrote a magnificent book on it, published in 2001, and is also author of the equally magnificent The English Castle (2011). God’s House at Ewelme was founded in 1437 by Alice and William de la Pole, then Earl and Countess of Suffolk. The almshouse and school that they founded still operate under the original endowment and the buildings that accommodate them remain intact. This talk will consider the history and life of this remarkable institution in the 15th century.
This talk will be held on Wednesday 12th Oct, 7.45 for 8pm, at St Mary’s Church, Wallingford.
Visitors (£4) are most welcome.
