Historic England – Apethorpe: The Rescue and Repair of an English Country House

19 March - 13:00 - 14:00

Tuesday, March 19, 2024
1pm – 2pm GMT
This webinar will tell the story of the rescue and repair of Apethorpe, a major country house in Northamptonshire. After severe neglect, English Heritage (later Historic England) stepped in and carried out a major programme of repairs in 2004-12. The programme of conservation works included masonry and timber repairs, and Collyweston slate roofing. There were particular challenges in the repairs to the fine Jacobean decorative plaster ceilings and oak panelling. The works were accompanied by a programme of historic building research resulting in an architectural monograph, a major contribution to country house studies.
