Since the first development of Poundbury in the 1980’s, its expansion and the subsequent construction of literally dozens of similar concepts around Britain, has led to a wealth of debate and massively polarized views about everything from the aesthetics, choice of architecture, scale and citing of each of these developments. This is an opportunity to present the facts and air and share the views.

It is rare to find a venue - and an audience - so thoroughly dedicated to the enjoyment culture and cultivation of the mind as Dillington House and its visitors. As someone who hasn't lived in Britain for the past two decades, Dillington was also a delightful reminder of the beauties of English landscape and rural architecture. It was a pleasure to speak there and I envy those who can visit frequently. Giles Tremlett (2012)
