Abstract:

Romantic, turreted, ancient, Madresfield Court has been the home of the Lygon family for over 900 years. Beneath the Malvern Hills, it is a lived-in family home in which the heraldic sits next to the domestic. The Lygons were the inspiration and model for the doomed Marchmain family in Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited: Waugh was a regular visitor in the 1930s, one in a long line of writers, composers, painters, royals and rebels who passed through Madresfield's doors. Now Jane Mulvagh has been given access to this very special house, still lived in by the 28th generation of Lygons. Drawing on a unique and virtually unknown archive that dates back to the Conquest, she illuminates a rich and dramatic history.
