The Map Room is part of the Society's neo-classical extension, which was commissioned in 1930. Its proportions mirror those of the original Lowther Lodge, built in the 1870s.
The Sunley Room is ideal for small meetings and is often hired with the Drayson Room to provide a separate break out or catering area.
