We have created a series of standalone installations each one describing an aspect of Richard Colt Hoare’s life. Colt Hoare was a hugely influential person not only in terms of the history of Stourhead but also for his contributions to archaeology, fine art, literature, local history, architecture and, not least, pelargoniums.

We ask the viewer provocative and ‘collisional’ questions with the intention of challenging perceived wisdom and disturbing the usual gentle Trust experience.
