The Arts Society Tonbridge Talk: The Treasurer, The Archbishop and the King – Great Houses During th
Henry VI left few lasting achievements but he did lavish great expense on his building projects. Whilst he concentrated on educational institutions, his courtiers worked on buildings which fundamentally altered the face of English architecture for over a century. This lecture examines the contrasts between Lord Cromwell’s work at Tattershall, Archbishop Bourchier’s construction at Knole and Henry’s own building at Eton.
The lecture begins at 2.30pm. All welcome. Suggested donation for visitors £6.
