Faculty of Education and Arts
School of Communication and Arts
The life of Reginald Pole Carew (1753-1835), European traveller, member of parliament, landowner and town planner, epitomised the best features of the Georgian Age. Twice married and the father of 15 children Pole Carew divided his life between Cornwall where he tirelessly improved his estate of Antony, and London where his public life was long and eventful. Always trusted by family and friends, throughout his long career he was driven by a strong sense of duty rare among many of his contemporaries.
