The Research Group:

Members of the Research Group have written a fascinating book on the life of Lord Bute which is available for purchase at the Walled Garden Entrance or via the Estate Office. A second book, which covers the history of Luton Hoo Estate to present day will be launched in the new year.  Both volumes were researched and written my members of our Volunteer Project.
