Wanderings in Voyseyland

Applications are now invited for the Society's online meeting on Saturday 10th July 2021, starting at 6pm (London time). Non-members are welcome.

Our speaker will be Alan Johnson. The title of his talk is Wanderings in Voyseyland.

Alan Johnson is an architect, and author of How to restore and improve your Victorian house (1984 & 1991), Converting old buildings (1988), and Understanding the Edwardian & inter-war house (2006). He joined the Victorian Society in 1973 when still a student, was a member of its main committee in 1979-82 and Hon. Architect to the Society in 1988-2006. He is much involved in the Wey & Arun Canal Trust and is currently researching and writing about the architect W.D. Caröe.

In this talk, Alan will present a personal travelogue of his visits to Voysey buildings. His journeys began as a second-year student of architecture in 1969 (the year he first met John Brandon-Jones) and continued to the 1980s, after his MA thesis. He will speak about his recollections of the exhibition, C.F.A. Voysey 1857-1941, Architect and Designer, first held at the Art Gallery and Museum at Brighton in 1978, which later toured. He will also tell us about his revived engagement in the subject of Voysey's architecture in the last four years.


This event is free for members. A charge of £5 per head will be made to non-members.
