Talk and Book Signing: West Dorset Country Houses by Michael Hill

West Dorset Country HousesMichael Hill’s new book, West Dorset Country Houses, is a superbly researched and illustrated account of country houses in eastern Dorset. Ranging from medieval palace buildings at Corfe Castle to Art Deco houses in Poole, over 30 homes are described in great detail including the use of many architectural drawings and plans.

During his talk at Dorset County Museum on 27th November, Michael Hill will discuss the book and explain how the social context of the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras became interwoven with architectural practices. The talk will be illustrated throughout with recent and contemporary drawings and photographs.

All are welcome to this talk which starts at 7.30pm. Entry is from 7.00pm and the event is free although a donation of £3.00 is encouraged to cover costs. Copies of Michael Hill’s book will also be on sale during the evening.
