Archive Exhibition 2017

This year marks the centenary of the death of Henry, 15th Duke of Norfolk.

Inheriting the Dukedom in 1860 as a boy aged thirteen, he was Duke for nearly 60 years during which time he rebuilt and restored Arundel Castle, managed large estates and played a significant role in public life - especially Catholic life.

Great riches, rank, and influence were offset by tragedy in his private life which encouraged him to use his inherited advantages for the benefit of others.

The Archives Exhibition this year commemorates the 15th Duke, and includes letters, plans and historic photographs to illustrate all aspects of his life and achievements.
