Published in association with the Historic Houses Association. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;
From the cover: Drawing on archive material and personal anecdote, Stately Living gives a first-hand insight into how life in Britains historic houses has changed over the centuries.
This lively book has been written in collaboration with members of the Historic Houses Association and celebrates how the same sense of determination and enterprise that inspired the creation of these magnificent houses is now directed to using them as the focus for a range of businesses. With declining agricultural incomes and soaring maintenance costs, many families have to rely on a large measure of ingenuity and a small number of dedicated staff to ensure the conservation and survival of their historic homes.
Stately Living is illustrated throughout with evocative black and white images, full colour photographs and delightful line drawings.
