…from Knebworth and Chichester

Martha Lytton Cobbold #666 on the web family tree, and chatelaine of Knebworth has been unanimously elected President of Historic Houses, the UK’s largest collection of over 1600 independently owned historic houses (of which of course, Knebworth is one) ranging from imposing castles and impressive palaces to hidden small sleepy medieval manors. 


Morwenna Gray Lytton Cobbold #672, Martha’s daughter has announced her engagement to Phillip Horatio Bush son of Mr and Mrs Graham Bush of Smeeth in Kent.


Dr Carolyn Cobbold #644, who lives near Chichester (and whose book A Rainbow Palate was the subject of a Cobbweb last month) finished 10th on a short list, chosen from thousands, for the BBC Woman’s Hour 30 most powerful volunteer women who had worked for the environment.  Her selection was for co-founding the Manhood Peninsula Partnership which resulted in the protection of 399 hectares of important and biodiverse habitats from flooding.
