A visit to Leith Hill Place – May 2021 (exact date to be confirmed)


Event Details


Leith Hill Place was the childhood home of one of England’s greatest composers, Ralph Vaughan Williams, who gave it to the National Trust in 1945.  His grandparents, Josiah Wedgwood III and Caroline (née Darwin) moved there in 1847 and his great uncle, the famous naturalist Charles Darwin, conducted experiments in the grounds.  Our visit will take place on a day when the house is not open to the public and, hopefully, the rhododendrons will be in full bloom.

The event will be limited to 25 participants and will include a light lunch and cream tea (to be confirmed)

Cost: £40 per person, (to be confirmed)
