Michael Drury is an architect in private practice at St Ann’s Gate in Salisbury and was Salisbury Cathedral Architect for more than 22 years. His book on Detmar Blow and others, entitled Wandering Architects was first published in 2000. Detmar Blow worked extensively as an architect in south Wiltshire from the 1890s up to the Great War and was the last disciple of John Ruskin. Following Ruskin’s advice, he set out on a career as a wandering architect. Michael Drury’s talk will cover Blow’s early career and concentrate on his local work.
