A day of discovery at Lamport Hall with Martin Drury CBE, Professor Phillip Lindley and Thomas Greenaway

Lamport Hall

One purpose of this day was to look at how a country house can be run in the 21st century. Professor Phillip Lindley of Leicester University and George Drye, the Executive Director of Lamport, discussed the running of Lamport Hall by a private trust. Martin Drury used the acquisition of Canons Ashby as an example of how the National Trust operates.  Thomas Greenaway, who made the pietra dura coat of arms on Richard III’s new tomb in Leicester Cathedral, gave a demonstration of his highly skilled work.
