Lost Houses of East Yorkshire
An illustrated talk by Edward Waterson

It is estimated that nearly two thousand English country houses have disappeared since the 1850s. In East Yorkshire around a hundred houses were demolished, among them Newington Hall, the Greek revival mansion that was home to Edward’s family in the nineteenth century. He will be exploring the reasons for the destruction of so many architectural masterpieces and taking us on a pictorial tour of this extraordinary aspect of the county’s heritage.

Edward has spent most of his working life as a Chartered Surveyor in York, specialising in historic buildings. His five books on Lost Houses have become standard works on the subject.
