Author and photographer Elisabeth Svalin Gunnarsson spoke online about this exceptional country house in the Swedish province of Halland. It was designed in the English style by Lars Israel Wahlman (1870–1952) for the shipping magnate James Fredrik Dickson (1844-1898). The house was inherited by Dickson's daughter Blance Bonde in 1906 and became a registered historical building in 1991. Lars von Trier filmed the exterior scenes of Melanchola at the castle. This event was hosted by our sister society, the Swedish-British Society in Stockholm.
