Throughout his life, Sir George Gilbert Scott was at the centre of a complex web of connections and relationships which spanned political figures, renowned clerics and academics, fellow architects, artists, craftsmen and aristocratic patrons. His vast office structure also led to him training and using as assistants men, some of whom would become renowned architects in their own right.
In this section, a selection of some of these people are listed together with Scott’s personal connection to them. Some are today famous names: Pugin, Morris, Burne Jones. Others are crafts and trades people that Scott favoured and valued, and are now forgotten although their work remains for all to see.
