Clubland revisited

  • Comment

Lord Carrington has long been recognised as a patron of modern architecture, thanks to commissioning the fashionable Aldington & Craig to design his own house in the Chilterns in the early 1970s. He is also, of course, chairman of the Architecture Club, whose summer outing will comprise a visit to his home and sculpture garden, thought to contain the largest private collection in the country. But in his wonderfully self-deprecating way, he has decided that this may fail to provide enough excitement for his guests, so the charabancs will also set off to the nearby caves. These housed the nefarious activities of the notorious Hell-Fire Club. Perhaps the demure Architecture Club should consider a change of name.
