The John Delafons Lecture this year will be about Ealing’s wonderful Pitzhanger Manor. The speaker will be Georgina Nayler, Deputy Chair of Pitzhanger Manor Trust. She will be describing the restoration which has been ongoing since early 2015 when the Manor closed to the public. It is due to reopen in spring 2018 following a restoration programme costing £12 million. The project will see the house fully returned to its former glory, the adjacent gallery refurbished and upgraded, plus a new restaurant and event space built in the walled kitchen garden.
Pitzhanger Manor is a Grade I listed house in Ealing once owned and designed by Sir John Soane (1753-1837), architect and surveyor to the Bank of England. Pitzhanger sits within the grounds of Walpole Park, its historical significance dating back to 1800 when it was purchased alongside the manor by John Soane.
All are welcome to this talk at 7.30 in Ealing Town Hall on Tuesday 23 May. Further details on our Events page.
