    I attended Kings Weston when it was a school, which was roughly 55 years ago! I have fond memories of my time there and would very much like to be involved with its future.

      Hi Christine, thanks for dropping us a line. We would love to have you involved. We’ll add you to our email database with pleasure and maybe see you soon!


    Sir Robert Southwell, who owned and died at Kings Weston in 1702, was my 7th great grand father. I was awe-struck when I got to visit Kings Weston in April 2014. It was an honor and a pleasure to walk in some of the spaces where he may have walked. His son Edward was my 6th great grand father. I’m so happy the KWAG is restoring the estate to it’s grandeur. I was pleased to find 6th great grand mother Anne’s picture at Dyrham Park. I can’t commute to help restore the building, but I will cheer the KWAG on.
    My best regards,
    Arthur Southwell

      Hi Arthur, thanks for getting in touch and I’m so pleased to hear you have such a close family connection to the estate. It is a very special place and we hope that our raising it’s profile will enable many more people to understand and love it too. I have added your email to our contact list so you can keep up to date with what is happening there and if any new historic information crops up. I am sure you will have found our online resources through the web site already, but we are always finding more!.
