SPEAKER: Chris Rogers
Christopher Rogers is a retired schoolmaster and lectures on Historic Buildings. He taught at Marlborough College, and ran Summer School courses on architectural and art history. He lives locally and has been an Arts Society lecturer for many years.
From the building of Marlborough House around 1700, which formed the nucleus of Marlborough College at its foundation in 1843, through the building of the Chapel, to the construction of a new dining hall (the Norwood Hall) in the 1960’s, the College has used a series of well-established architects to create the range of buildings which are so familiar to us today.
