Weston Park, The House, The Families
and The Influence by Gareth Willians
Weston Park, with its thousand acre landscape park, was gifted to the nation in 1986 by Richard, 7th Earl of Bradford. Until then, the house had always passed by descent, and it had stood at the centre of an estate with a wide geographical spread.? Weston Park’s owners and staff had a pivotal role in the development of these places, whilst the family were involved in national affairs, in politics, the legal profession, and the military. Their seat at Weston Park provided not only a fitting home, visited by royalty and politicians, but also became a repository of important patronage and of collections.
Meticulously researched and beautifully illustrated, this book seeks to tell the story of the house, its setting, extraordinary collections, and the influence that it has had on wider communities through the history of those who have owned and cared for it.? This book contains many references and archive images of work by John Fowler at Weston Park from the 1930’s and more recently by Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler Associate Director Janie Money.
