The Mausolea & Monuments Trust

Online talk: Beckford’s Tower in Bath: Public landmark or private monument?

16 June 2021 at 6.30pm

Intensely private yet constructed on one of busiest roads into Georgian Bath, Beckford’s Tower (1826-7) was at one time intended to be the mausoleum of its creator William Beckford (1760-1844). This talk will explore the architectural development of the building and its landscape, and investigate the work being undertaken to interpret all aspects of Beckford’s life as a designer, writer, collector and slave owner.

Dr Amy Frost is an architectural historian and Senior Curator of the Bath Preservation Trust’s Four museums

Price: £5
