Exploring 2 and a half centuries of Meersbrook’s Georgian Mansion

Portland Works

£5.00 per ticket, £3.00 for members of Friends of Portland Works


Our speaker this month is Ken Dash, retired archaeologist and local historian.  He will guide us through the history of 3 families and Meersbrook Hall’s subsequent use as the home of the Ruskin Museum and as Council Offices.  Ken will illustrate his talk with a fascinating slide show taking us back to the Georgian era when the Hall was built for the Roebuck family.

Many of us are familiar with the walled garden and nurseries, here is the opportunity to find out about the house itself.
