Blickling Belles

Powerful women in history inspire Stanhoe WI members.

A small group of members plus guests from Wells WI enjoyed Kate Barnes speaking on “The Blickling Belles” at the August meeting of Stanhoe and Barwick WI.

The three ladies featured by portraits accompanied by intriguing and scandalous stories were: Henrietta Howard, Harriet Viscountess Lothian, and Lady Amelia Hobart later Countess Castlereagh.

All three had complicated home lives and marriages through which they all managed to shine in Society, with royalty and government connections.

We shall all look at the portraits in a different way when we next visit Blickling.

It was pleasing to hear that the speaker is donating her fee to fund a Conservation Cabinet for the Antiquarian Library at Blickling.
