About the event

Join volunteer David Neal for a fascinating stroll from the site of the Panshanger Mansion, find out about some of the people who lived, visited, or were associated it, take in Repton's landscape, hear about his work at the Park and, of course, visit the magnificent “Panshanger Oak”.

26th August, 1738, was the birth of George Nassau Clavering-Cowper (later 3rd Earl). Possibly the most colourful of the Earls, George was the one who went on the Grand Tour, stayed on in Florence (only returning briefly once), was the “absent” MP for Hertford, amassed much of the Cowper art collection including the 2 Raphael Maddonnas, and added Prince of Milan in the Holy Roman Empire to the Cowper titles.  Find out more about the Art Gallery at Panshanger and some of the paintings displayed in it.

Parking will be available close by at the Panshanger House site.
