Sampson and Sidmouth (E Devon Branch)

Fri. 8 November 2024 at 2:30 pm

£3 – £4

Sampson and Sidmouth – From Council Houses to a Major Hotel.

A talk by Nigel Hyman.

Although Sidmouth is described as a Regency town, it was the architect R. W. Sampson (1866–1950) who shaped its appearance between the 1890s and 1930s. The sheer range of his building styles is staggering and included Arts & Crafts, Cottage Orné, Queen Anne and Brewers Tudor. Craftsmanship and attention to detail were his hallmarks. In addition, he was an accomplished watercolourist and fine singer.

In this talk, Nigel Hyman will show how Sampson’s legacy is still highly visible in Sidmouth today.

Admission £3 members, £4 non-members, by card or cash.
