Art, Architecture and Museums Series: County Durham Architecture - from Elizabethan to Georgian

5:45pm, Gala Theatre, Durham, Adrian Green

A lecture exploring the innovative architecture built in County Durham between the reigns of Queen Elizabeth I and King George III. County Durham was a wealthy region due to the coal trade to London. Coal owners built impressive mansions with landscaped parks; the clergy rebuilt their rectories and parish churches, while lawyers, merchants, farmers and craftsmen rebuilt their homes in ways that transformed the towns and villages of County Durham. This lecture illustrates the surprising wealth of architecture surviving from this period.
