Avebury Manor and Garden
The television series The Manor Reborn, which aired in December 2011, showed how nine of Avebury Manor's rooms and part of the garden were redecorated and redesigned in five different styles: Tudor, Queen Anne, Georgian, Victorian and 20th century. This imaginative process drew on the team's expertise, historical research and inventories from other houses of the selected periods to help recreate inspirational interiors for the rooms.
The refurbishment of Avebury Manor was designed so that the rooms reflected the period in which the residents of Avebury Manor lived and you can learn about these people as you go around. Furniture and objects were either recreated by modern craftsmen or genuine antique furniture was restored. All the 'new' furniture needed to be made strong enough to be used, sat on and touched.
