EVENT IS DUE TO PROCEED AS PLANNED

After being deserted for four decades and having fallen into serious disrepair, the sixteenth-century English country house of the Earls of Shaftesbury has undergone a thorough renovation—from the roof, structural walls, and interiors of St Giles House to the surrounding grounds, gardens, and exquisite shell-lined grotto— all helmed by The 12th Earl of Shaftesbury, Nicholas Edmund Anthony Ashley-Cooper. Chronicling the extensive five year renovation of this storied property, The Rebirth of an English Country House offers a front row seat into the trials and tribulations, and eventual successes, of the renaissance of the property, dramatic transformations that honour the past, while embracing twenty-first-century living.
