Architectural historian, Richard Suggett will be giving a illustrated talk on “John Nash and the restoration of St David’s Cathedral” at 7.30pm Friday, 1 November 2013 to Pembrokeshire Historical Society at the Picton Centre, Haverfordwest. The lecture will look at the somewhat rackety world of Georgian building and the career of John Nash, the prince regent’s architect, in particular. John Nash tried to rebuild his career in Carmarthen after bankruptcy and a strange divorce in London. The lecture will explore some of Nash’s little-known houses and public buildings built in west Wales in 1790s. The challenge of stabilising the west front of St David’s Cathedral was a turning point in Nash’s career. Success helped turn Nash into an architect of national reputation.
