78 Derngate, Northampton
The only Charles Rennie MacKintosh House not in Scotland

Wednesday 12 June 2019

This unique building is the only house in England designed by Charles Rennie Macintosh who remodelled the Georgian house for the businessman Wenman Joseph Bassett-Locke to be his first marital home in 1917. It is the only significant Mackintosh work south of the Scottish border with the famed bold colours, clean geometric forms and Art Nouveau furnishings we can expect. In 2002 work started to restore the house which had been used as a Girls School.  Extensions now provide a museum, a light filled Art Gallery, elegant spaces and an acclaimed restaurant. If you think it a long way to go, may I remind you of a most successful Visit to Coventry in 2014, a similar journey which passed quickly and easily on good roads. The coach will then take us on to St. Matthews Church in Northampton. Dr Anna Barrington- Ward’s PhD Thesis described two modern masterpieces in the church which is interesting in itself. We shall have a Guided Tour.
