From Blenheim to Chartwell

Stefan Buczacki

Saturday 13th October 13:45 - 14:45 | Northwood House

From Blenheim to Chartwell is a biography of Winston Churchill through the houses he lived in and the gardens he made. It culminates with the full story of his purchase, alteration and creation of Chartwell, Kent, where he lived for more than 40 years before and after the war, and which is now, in keeping with his intentions, owned and run by the National Trust. Gardening expert and author Stefan Buczacki has researched Winston Churchill’s homes and gardens, discovering a side to the great leader that is largely unknown– that of a man steeped in Victorian values who looked after his personal staff and behaved with utmost integrity and honesty in all of his business dealings as well. Based on extensive and scholarly archive study, this well illustrated book bring to light an array of previously unpublished details and reveals a fascinating side to Britain’s greatest war leader.
