Coach Outing to Knebworth House and Much Hadham

29th June 2019

Knebworth House

In June the Society’s outing is to Knebworth House and Much Hadham, and this will take place on Saturday 29th.

Knebworth has been home to the Lytton family for over 500 years.  The visit includes a guided tour of the house and a viewing of the Indian Raj exhibition. There should also be time to visit the extensive gardens which originally date back to the sixteenth century.

After lunch the trip moves on to the beautiful village of Much Hadham and its Forge Museum which includes a working forge which visitors are sometimes lucky enough to view.  Tucked away inside Forge House is a room of Elizabethan wall paintings. Unique in their subject matter and of international significance, all visitors can see the wall paintings featuring The Judgement of Solomon, the Royal Arms of Elizabeth and the Newce family arms.

Much Hadham was the Manor of the Bishops of London for 900 years and their summer palace was the birthplace of the Tudor dynasty. There is a beautiful village church, which houses the only stained-glass window ever designed by Henry Moore, and his stone carvings adorn the doorway to the bell tower too.
