An account of Trent Park tracing its evolution from medieval hunting ground to university campus. Originally known as Enfield Chace, the parkland acquired a villa and the name of Trent Place during the eighteenth century, before becoming a grand house in a pastoral setting during the Victorian ownership of Robert Bevan. The transformation to impressive Palladian mansion with landscaped vistas was the achievement of Sir Philip Sassoon during the inter-war years. Now Trent Park has become the administrative hub of Middlesex University, and a major centre for dance and drama education, with most of the estate open to the public. The book will be of interest to all past and present students of Middlesex University, to North London residents keen on local and social history, and to anyone interested in antiques and objects d'art.
