“About Those Abbeys…A Trip Through History, Literature, and Stately Homes”
January 12 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Our own Ms Vicky Hinshaw will be presenting a talk:
About Those Abbeys: A Trip Through History, Literature, and the Picturesque
Where did the hundreds of abbeys in England come from? Hinshaw will lead a colorful visual tour of abbey history. She will review the power and prestige of the religious orders and what happened when Henry VIII seized their property. And we will learn how abbeys were transformed into country houses, schools and famous gardens.
