29. March 2017 · Comments Off on The Society’s Annual Outing 2017 – Antony · Categories: News

The Society’s annual outing took place on Thursday 22 June 2017 to Antony, the National Trust property at Torpoint. Antony remains the family home of the Carew-Pole family, who became caught up in the extraordinary events of the English Civil War.

A house of silver grey stone, Antony is a beguiling mixture of the formal and informal. It is believed to be one of the finest surviving Queen Anne buildings in the West Country. It contains an outstanding collection of portraits, including works by Sir Joshua Reynolds and a famous painting of Charles I during his trial. There are also fine examples of period furniture, textiles and tapestries.

Visitors can explore the landscape garden, which includes a formal garden with topiary, modern sculptures and the National Collection of Daylilies. The Woodland Garden, owned and run by the Carew Pole Garden Trust, also has outstanding rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias and camellias.
