- protect the environment - flora, fauna and landscapes.
- respect local cultures - traditions, religions and built heritage.
- benefit local communities - both economically and socially.
- conserve natural resources - from office to destination.
- minimise pollution - through noise, waste disposal and congestion.

Thomas Chippendale's Genius
And None Shall Compare
The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director, the first text of its kind solely devoted to the furniture and furnishings of eighteenth century interiors in England, resulting in his illustrious international reputation today. Where better to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Chippendale’s birth in 1718 than Firle Place, Sussex, home to the ‘Panshanger Cabinets’ - two of the finest pieces ever produced by his workshop.
