Welcome once again to a very special episode of Past Loves - the new weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.

This week I am joined by two guests, Nick Howard and Chris Ridgway. Chris is Castle Howard's curator and since 1984, he has lectured nationally and internationally about the history of this historic house near York. Nick, conversely, is a descendant of the Howard family and resides in this most glorious of stately homes, synonymous with Brideshead Revisited, today.

Both lead us through three centuries of the Howard family, highlighting the love stories intertwined across time into the branches of this family tree. From the daughter of the 3rd Earl of Carlisle, Anne, to George and Cecilia the couple that opened Castle Howard to the public, this episode reveals a rich family history that exemplifies the importance of celebrating centuries of affection.
