Masham Town Hall, Little Market Place, Masham

The Story of Nutwith Cote – “Monks, Horses & Gardens”. Marie-Anne Hintze & Michael Chaloner.

Marie-Anne & Michael initially came across Nutwith Cote as members of the Historic Parks & Gardens Study Group, compiling a gazetteer of sites in the Nidderdale AONB. The project was funded by the Lottery & worked under the guidance of community archaeologist Kevin Cale. Marie-Anne Hintze was the Chair of the Group & Michael Chaloner was the Secretary.

Initial interest in the gardens soon developed into a desire to find out more about this exceptional place & eventually led to the compiling of a little booklet summing up the long history of Nutwith Cote, from its early days as a monastic grange to its place in the history of horse racing & beyond.

Non members are charged £3.00 per meeting which includes refreshments.
