The recent opening of Stoneywell, a family holiday cottage in Charnwood Forest, by the National Trust is an important moment in the history of the Trust in Leicestershire. The architect of Stoneywell, Ernest Gimson was a key figure in the Arts and Crafts movement and Harry Hardy Peach was one of the inheritors of the ideas of that movement. It is particularly appropriate that this year's lecture, commemorating the life and work of Harry Peach, should focus on his interests in conservation and the countryside.
