Visit to 78 Derngate, Northampton

Mackintosh Society London and South East Members visit to 78 Derngate, Northampton.

Saturday 21 October 2023 at 11 am

78 Derngate was re-modelled by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1916 for his client, Northampton model maker, W. J. Bassett-Lowke.  It is many years since the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society has visited Derngate and a guided tour in October is proposed which can be combined with a visit to the recently refurbished and extended Northampton Museum and Art Gallery which is only 5 minutes’ walk.

We will meet at 11 am at 82 Derngate for coffee and then we will be taken on a guided tour of the house in groups of 12.  If there are more than 12 people, then some of us may be asked to visit the museum and art gallery first.

Trains to Northampton take around an hour from London Euston and Derngate is approximately 15 minutes’ walk from the railway station.  A day trip is possible, but some people may also decide to make a weekend of it.

Tickets cost £11.00 plus booking fee (includes coffee on arrival) and are available from Eventbrite


Members can choose to make their own arrangements or join in a group booking at the Museum and Art Gallery cafe.  If you wish to join the group booking for lunch, please contact by Friday 6 October, to give us time to make arrangements.  Payment for lunch will be made on the day direct to the Museum Café.
