I am responsible to the trustees for the strategic direction and operational management of the Trust, directing the restoration programme, enhancing the visitor experience and liaising with the National Trust and Stowe School. I was appointed as Operations Director at Stowe School in August 2009, I assumed the additional responsibilities of CEO of the Stowe House Preservation Trust in December of the same year. Having graduated from Durham University with a modern languages degree, I joined the Royal Air Force and rose to head the Logistics Profession before retiring to join Transport for London (TfL) as the Director responsible for London’s road network. Throughout my RAF career, I maintained an interest in the RAF’s history and, at an early stage, oversaw the refurbishment of the Museum of the RAF Regiment.
Hi, I’m Anna McEvoy and I am the House Custodian. I’ve been working for SHPT since May 2005. I came as a newly funded post with a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and have been here ever since! For the last few years I have dealt purely with the historical research of Stowe House and to a lesser extent, Stowe School. This includes answering public inquiries, maintaining the 'Lost Treasures of Stowe' campaign, undertaking research for the current restoration projects, writing the archaeology reports for the State Rooms and looking after the archive. I still learn something new about Stowe every day!
