Devey in Sudbury: Evening Talk with Cherry Ann Knott
9th September 2022
Sitting at the most southern part of the Derbyshire Dales, Sudbury is a delightful former estate village to nearby Sudbury Hall and the National Trust’s Children’s Country House. The name, Sudbury, is of Saxon origins and means ‘south fortification’. Even before the Norman conquest there was a village here.
Join Cherry Ann Knott for an evening talk, discussing the influence of George Devey and the 6th Lord Vernon on the evolving design of Sudbury Village. Devey was one of the Architects of Sudbury Hall, Sudbury Gasworks and many other buildings across the village during the late 1800’s.
Cherry was the former property manager of the National Trust’s 17th-century mansion, Sudbury Hall, and curator of its Museum of Childhood; she has since carried out extensive archive research, focusing on the building of the Hall.
Ticket prices include drinks and canapes by Sweet Little Café, Sudbury Courtyard.
