Autumn: season of interesting events

 

The Sanfords had a large estate in West Somerset and a fine house at Nynehead Court where the remains of their extensive gardens and landscaped grounds can still be seen. One survivor is the great bridge over the river, which was at one time dammed to form a great lake. The large Sanford archive is of national importance including political and cultural correspondence and some remarkable early recipes. The Sanfords were also prominent in forming and maintaining the Somerset Archaeological Society.

Few know more about the Sanfords than David Rabson who will give a presentation on the family on 24 October at 7.30 pm at the Somerset Heritage Centre, Taunton, TA2 6SF.

 

All Welcome, tea and cake available
