A Virtual Tour of Bisham Abbey3rd June, 2014 Ann Darracott
Ann is a retired marine biologist, but since her retirement has joined the Green Way Working Group as well as studying historic sites and buildings such as Ockwells Manor, Shottesbrook Church and Bisham Abbey. Her recent talk and subsequent visit to Ockwells were truly enlightening.
Ann's talk to us on Bisham which is now owned by Sport England, will start with its early beginnings as a Knights Templar Preceptory in the C13th to the ownership of the Hoby family in the C16th and that of the Vansittarts, who restored and embellished the ancient house.
A visit for interested HA&HG members to Bisham following Ann's talk has been arranged for 29th June.
