We will be visiting Buscot Park, the family home of Lord Faringdon, who looks after the property on behalf of the National Trust.
Buscot park was built between 1780 and 1783, and was greatly enlarged by Lord Faringdon’s great grandfather in the 1890’s.
The house is set within a large park of over 100 acres, containing woodland, lakes and formal Gardens as well as a large walled kitchen garden representing the four seasons.
We will be given a private guided tour with the curator and will be able to view the family collection of pictures, furniture, ceramics, and objets d’art, known as the Faringdon Collection which is displayed in the house.
The extensive picture collection includes works by Rembrandt and Burne-Jones.
In addition to this there will be an opportunity to see contemporary paintings, ceramics, glass and silver that has been added to the collection by the present Lord Faringdon.
Booking information will be circulated to members as soon as the details of the visit have been confirmed.
