A History of Dartington Hall in Twenty-Three Moments

Compiled by Kevin Mount

Paperback, 72 pages

If you had to convey a historical appreciation of Dartington in 72 pages, what stories would you choose? Would they mirror the rich archive of letters, reports, photographs and artefacts contained in our new publication: ‘A history of Dartington Hall in twenty-three moments’?

Compiled and designed for the Trust by Kevin Mount, this new booklet conveys ‘the spectacular coincidence of desires, aspirations and resources on which today’s Dartington Hall was founded, and tries to give a flavour of the energy and ambition still needed to drive its work forward’. It also effectively illustrates the many-sidedness of Dartington that continues to develop and enrich lives today.

While not sparing some of the more gruesome exploits and political machinations of The Middle Ages, the mainstay of the book covers the Elmhirst era onwards and offers a compelling, often alternative, insight into how Dartington has shaped past lives and vice versa.
