History Society: Visit to Iford Manor

Thirty-four members and guests visited Iford Manor on Tuesday 6th October.  We were shown around the mediaeval house and the gardens landscaped by Harold Peto by John and Elizabeth Cartwright-Hignett.  Many items from Elizabeth’s former home, Aynhoe Park, were on display.

Many of you will be aware of our research into this subject.  We have approached Channel 4 Time Team and they have informed us that they will be considering research projects, including ours, for inclusion in their 2010 programme in December 2009.  We will keep you informed.
