Dorset - Visit to Houghton Lodge
Alumni and guests are invited to join the Cambridge Society of Dorset for a visit to Houghton Lodge.
This was built in the Cottage Ornée style for the Pitt-Rivers family and is set in a beautiful location by the River Test near Stockbridge. A talk and guided tour of the house by Sophie Busk, the present owner, fits in with lunch and time to explore the garden and grounds, which were the location for scenes from the television production of David Copperfield with Maggie Smith.
There is a limit of 50 visitors for this event.
Details on how to book for the event will be available nearer to the event.
The Barrington Centre is in the centre of Ferndown, accessed from the pedestrianised area opposite the main entrance to Tesco superstore.

Please arrive at 1030 for a welcoming tea or coffee, and the talk will start at 1100.
