Ruins of Slaugham Place - Arthur Shopland (1 of 6)

Arthur Shopland (1933-2014) wrote several articles on Slaugham Place during the latter part of his life and took photographs of his work in restoring the ruins to preserve them for future generations. In recent years the Slaugham Society has gathered together this material and published a small book as a much-deserved tribute to Arthur.
There is a wealth of fascinating information on the mansion and the local iron industry, complemented with many personal anecdotes associated with Arthur’s work on the ruins.
Arthur’s knowledge on these subjects was unparalleled.
