Lady Ashcombe speaks to Charles Russell Speechlys about the story of Historic Houses
Earlier this summer, Historic Houses’ legal partner, Charles Russell Speechlys, interviewed Lady Ashcombe, owner of Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, about her involvement in setting up the Historic Houses Association (HHA), as it was known until recent years, and how the organisation has developed and supported Britain’s independent heritage since the 1970’s.
Filmed in two parts, Charles Russell Speechlys partner, Henry Fea, also finds out about how Lady Ashcombe has managed to keep and develop the Sudeley Castle estate to be enjoyed for many generations to come.
