This school project explored the architectural and social history of Parham House. Based on academic research by Dr Jayne Kirk (for the EPE publication Parham: An Elizabethan House and its Restoration) the project’s teaching material shows how country houses give us important insight into the lives of the people that lived and worked there.
In the Tudor architectural detail of Parham House, we see the skill of the stonemasons, joiners, bricklayers and plasterers. The lifestyles of the rich would not have been possible without the support of the many servants; an estate such as Parham Park needed all sorts of different labourers to ensure productivity. The house has evolved over time, dictated by the finances and wishes of its owners - so it is important to focus on the evidence for a specific period.
