'Those Arts which have given celebrity to the name of Repton': The work of George Stanley Repton in Devon

A talk by Dr Rosemary Yallop

2018 has been the celebration of two hundred years since the death of Humphry Repton with many events staged throughout the country.  However, the work of Humphry Repton's sons is rather less well known than that of their father, but DGT member and architectural historian, Dr Rosemary Yallop, has been researching the work of George Stanley Repton in Devon and finding some interesting connections.  He was an architect who initially worked with John Nash, with commissions in Devon including Kitley, Peamore and Sandridge.  Later in the Summer of 2019 there will be a visit to Sandridge Park (more details will appear in the next DGT Newsletter).

When:  Thursday 28th March 2019  |  2.30p.m.
Where:  Southernhay Church Hall, Dix's Field, Exeter, EX1 1QA.
Cost:  £12 (DGT members); £15 (Non-members and guests of members).  Includes refreshments.
