Our Autumn Event will be a visit to Sulgrave Manor in the afternoon of Saturday, 30 September, in south Northamptonshire, It is a Tudor and Georgian house built by the direct ancestors of George Washington, first President of the United States. Civil War, financial ruin and a shipwreck led Washington’s great-grandfather to seek a fresh start in the New World.

The visit will include a guided tour of the gardens and the house, plus a cream tea. The fee will be £15.60 per person. More information will be published in our Summer issue of HIB.
