Stowe Through Time by Anthony Meredith
  

Synopsis

Stowe Through Time by Anthony Meredith

This exploration of Stowe through time offers something very different in its pictorial approach. The centuries flash by, yet nothing important is excluded: the medieval beginnings; the house and gardens over 300 years of ownership by one family; the founding of the school; and its ongoing partnership with the National Trust and the Stowe House Preservation Trust, whose efforts in securing for posterity one of Britain's most unusual heritage sites continue so successfully. Anthony Meredith, whose family's links with Stowe go back to the 1930s, has seen it from many angles - as a teacher of classics, senior housemaster, head of drama, director of admissions, founder of the Stowe Project in Visual Education and author of Discover Stowe booklets. Informative, yet a concise, easy read, Stowe Through Time is a highly personal insider's view, an ideal introduction to a remarkable but often mystifying place.
