Trip - Arley Hall & Gardens, Cheshire

Arley Hall, a country house in the village of Arley, Cheshire, is home to Viscount Ashbrook . The house is a Grade II* listed building, as is its adjacent chapel. Formal gardens to the southwest of the hall are also listed at Grade II* on the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens. In the grounds are more listed buildings, a cruck barn being listed as Grade I, and the other buildings as Grade II. The hall was built for Rowland Egerton-Warburton between 1832 and 1845, to replace an earlier house on the site. Local architect George Latham designed the house in a style known as Jacobethan, copying elements of Elizabethan architecture. A Gothic Revival chapel designed by Anthony Salvin was subsequently built next to the hall. By the mid-20th century parts of the house were in poor condition and were demolished, to be replaced by five private homes in a matching architectural style. The gardens created in the 1830s were developed during the 20th century. The garden's Herbaceous Border was one of the first of its type in Britain, and remains one of the finest.

May Open Meeting

Henry Farrar provides a talk titled 'The Golden Age of Film' which describes the history of the use of film in the BBC. Henry was a BBC film cameraman and director of photography based at Ealing Film Studios until he retired in 1989 when digital cameras took over the work and shares his experience when until the late 1980s, film was widely used by the BBC. For most of that period, electronic images could not be recorded, so film was vital for recording live performances and more importantly, creating new programmes.
