A visit has been arranged to Ribston Hall near Wetherby with the kind permission of the Hon Mrs Dent.
This will be followed by a special festive luncheon at The Crown Inn, Roecliffe, near Bororoughbridge for a second year.
Ribston Hall is the fine late 17th century house, built for the Goodricke family, with a spectacular neo Classical Saloon created by Carr of York in the early 1770s, comparable to one of the great interiors at Harewood. Its pictures, furnishings and decoration have been described as ‘the ultimate in Grand Tour taste’, and ‘one of the most magnificent and unified of all 18th century interiors – not to say bringing a welcome breath of Italy to the Yorkshire Dales’ [particularly in mid December ! – editor].
This event is limited to 25 members only – Please see Newsletter for further details and booking form.
