Despite the loss of the Americal colonies and the king’s personal difficulties culminating in madness, the reign of George III is notable for the scale and variety of developments which characterised it. ‘Farmer George’ witnessed great changes in agriculture and a country being transformed by mail coaches, roads, canals and an accelerating industrial revolution. A protracted war with France witnessed the country’s most outstanding period of naval history and the decisive defeat of France at Waterloo. The art of Gainsborough, Wright of Derby and others crown a remarkable period in English history.

Back to List
I love going to Dillington. Where is there like it? Arriving is like a decompression, a deep breath of pure air. The programmes of courses, concerts and talks are exceptional. The company is delightful; the food and the ambiance add to the pleasure; and all set in a magical landscape which seems to me a secret Somerset paradise. In a world of increasing dislocation, Dillington has a real sense of its place in the world. Michael Wood
