The Mary Webb Society

The weekend will be hosted by the George Eliot Fellowship in Nuneaton. TheĀ  Saturday event will be based at Nuneaton Town Hall on Coton Road, Nuneaton CV11 5AA. It is a beautiful building opened in 1934 and designed in the Georgian style by Peacock and Bewley of Birmingham.

A trip to Arbury Hall is planned for the Sunday. The Hall was the ancestral home of the Newdigate family. George Eliot was born on one of the estate farms- the daughter of the estate’s land agent. Arbury Hall became “Cheveral Manor” in Scenes of Clerical Life.
