Description

The country houses of Yorkshire, steeped in a rich and colourful history and still existing for all to enjoy. This book tours round 32 of the most fascinating homes in the county and gives a unique insight into how they came to glory and how some have revived their fortunes in recent years, adapting to the modern world. There are stories of the men who built them, the people who lived there; those who served; those involved in restoration; and the great and the good who came to visit.
The book shows the many varied ways in which houses have been modified for alternative uses, from zoos to rock concerts and museums.
Featuring over 300 outstanding images, and produced in a beautiful art format, we see the houses in all their glory. They are amazing properties built from the dreams and wealth of great people who revealed their characters in the grand designs. The Yorkshire Country House is a beautifully written and produced book on an impressive scale and is to be admired as much as the glorious subject itself.
