Visit to WILLEY PARK (CANCELLED)
Tuesday 19 May 2020

DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 PROBLEMS, WE REGRET THAT WE HAVE DECIDED TO CANCEL THIS OUTING.  All those who have expressed their interest in going on this visit are being contacted regarding this cancellation.

Arrangements have now been concluded for an afternoon outing to Willey Park, near Much Wenlock.  The house sits in an estate of 15,000 acres and is lived in by Lord Forester and his young family.  It was designed in 1812-1813 and built soon afterwards.  The architect was Lewis Wyatt, and Pevsner described it as a very elegant design and superbly placed, and went on to say that the decoration of the principal rooms was equally superb.

The visit will involve travelling by mini-bus holding 16 or 17 people (being the maximum numbers permitted for groups) leaving at 1pm and returning at approx. 6.30pm.  The tour of the house will be followed by afternoon tea or coffee and cakes.  The cost is £52 per person.
