Next Lecture:  Basingstoke and its Contribution to World culture

  Ludlow Assembly Rooms      Wed 21 February 2018    2:15 pm

 

 

A few historic gems have survived the work of the post war planners. This lecture, hilariously told, is a story that neatly illustrates the ugliest episode in England’s architectural history. As Betjeman wrote prophetically, “What goes for Basingstoke goes for most English towns”.  Be amused as Rupert Willoughby unveils the Basingstoke buried under concrete and reflect on the consequences.
