How Camden Place was Reimagined

A 1717 country house transformed into a country mansion by James 'Athenian' Dance. In 1860 the house was re-imagined as a French chateaux including dining room panelling from the Chateaux de Bercy.

The talk will be given by Angela Hatton, Director of Heritage at Camden Place. The talk will be followed by tours of the ground floor lead by volunteers.
