Warwickshire Country Houses
Warwickshire boasts some of England’s finest country houses, ranging in date from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. This book gives a comprehensive history of 53 of the main houses in the historic county, such as the medieval castle of Warwick and ancient manor houses such as Baddesley Clinton. The often complex histories of these houses are related in detail, with information about the families who built and lived in them, and about the architects, craftsmen and gardeners who created them. There are also accounts in gazetteer format of 100 of the lesser-known houses.
