British Antiques Roadshow

Shugborough (Part 1 of 2) (#2509)

Michael Aspel introduces the Roadshow from Shugborough Hall, the ancestral home of the Earls of Lichfield and now the property of the National Trust. The present Earl is Patrick Lichfield, the photographer. The house is just a few miles from Lichfield and its Cathedral with three spires. Shugborough hall is on the edge of Cannock Chase. Plunder on the high seas financed the rebuilding of the hall in classical style and the gardens were the first in England to use architectural features, follies, temples and so on as part of the landscape. Many of these were designed by James 'Athenian' Stuart. [28 minutes] Closed Captioning
