History Alive at Dudmaston

Visitors to Dudmaston Hall on 8th May will discover and meet the colourful characters who have lived in the Hall since the 18th Century. Donated to the National Trust by Lady Rachel Labouchere in 1978, Dudmaston has seen a rich tapestry of family members residing within its walls, many of whom were considered to be innovators of their time. Probably the best known by people today is Charles Babbage, inventor of ‘Differential Engine No. 1’, the forefather of the computer.

House Steward Kellie Channing said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to come and find out about the people who have lived at Dudmaston, as there will be the opportunity to see many photographs and artefacts held within the collections at the Hall which usually reside within the archives”.
