March 15, 2019 Knole Restored! The Unveiling of a Tudor Power-House

In today's programme, Sarah talks with Natalie Cohen and Frances Parton from Knole, in Kent; from a Tudor perspective, this was the grand country house of first, the Archbishops of Canterbury, and later Henry VIII himself. We hear, in particular, about a major restoration project that has been underway at Knole. We find out about what was uncovered during the works undertaken, and also about the wonderful new spaces in the house that are now accessible to the public for the first time.

We also hear from Heather Teysko from English Renaissance podcast about her favourite Tudor place to visit - King's College Chapel in Cambridge.
