Three Great Families and their Gardens; a History of the Astors, Rothchilds & Sackville Wests Caroline Rayman Wednesday 16 October 2019

This talk combines the lives of the Astors, the Sackville Wests and the Rothschilds and their family history with the story of the gardens they have all created, despite their very different backgrounds, here in the English countryside.

Caroline Rayman has lectured for many years to universities and art organisations in America and on cruise boats. She was an official guide at the British Museum and has published articles on samplers.
