AUTHOR: Joan Jordon
The History of Dunster Church & Priory 2
The History of Dunster Church & Priory 2
  • Description
  • Related

This volume continues the story of Dunster Church and Priory, from the Restoration of Charles II in 1660 until the twentieth century. These were often politically turbulent years, affecting even the small town of Dunster.

Drawing on contemporary sources, Joan Jordan gives us a vivid picture of the continuing daily life of the villagers as their world gradually changed to one more like our own.

The author describes fully the major restoration of the church in 1874-76 by G. E. Street. She also recounts the prominent part the Luttrell family of Dunster Castle continued to play in Dunster life, and shows their impact on church, castle and village.

Thoroughly researched and annotated, this second volume is a valuable addition to the first, and a major contribution to our knowledge of the village of Dunster, its Church and Priory.

Joan Jordan studied at the Study Centre for the Fine and Decorative Arts at the V&A where she majored on the history of European architecture and the decorative arts. At the same time as lecturing on French furniture, Sevres porcelain and the history of the collection at the Wallace Collection, she also lectured for the V&A (Education Department) on Meissen porcelain and at the Inchbald School of Design (Antiques’ Course) on ceramics. In the 1970s, with her late husband, she moved to Somerset to pursue a country way of life far removed from the metropolitan background setting in Dunster in 1985. She published her first volume on Dunster in 2007, after 20 years of research.
