BIID Tour of the Warner Textiles Archive 26th March 2019
members, plus a guest, are invited to enjoy a private curator led tour
of Southside House in the magical light of 228 candles, including a
glass of prosecco on arrival in the house’s peaceful gardens. As this
event was such a success last time, we are running it again for those of
you who missed out.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Described by connoisseurs as an unforgettable experience, Southside House provides an enchantingly eccentric backdrop to the lives and loves of generations of the Pennington Mellor Munthe families. Maintained in traditional style without intrusive refurbishment and crowded with family possessions of centuries, Southside offers a wealth of fascinatingly eccentric family stories told by curator and historian Richard Sturman.
Southside was re-fashioned in the William and Mary style, and behind the long façade are the old rooms, still with much of the furniture which the Penningtons brought here, and a superb collection of art and historical objects reflecting centuries of ownership.
WHAT YOU WILL LEAVE WITH
glimpse into the world of a 17th-century, Grade II* listed house
containing many examples of 17th century furniture, art and memorabilia
connected to the Pennington family.
