Discover Britain's Historic Houses: Yorkshire by Simon Jenkins
Model Number: 9780276440663
Britain has more historic houses, great and small, that are open to the public than anywhere else in the world. Stately homes, ruined castles and abbeys, merchants’ mansions, peasant cottages – the stories of such buildings and their occupants, past and present, add up to an extraordinary record of our history.
Author Simon Jenkins is a leading writer on this rich heritage. Here we present his vision of Yorkshire’s 92 most impressive, interesting or unusual dwellings – from Castle Howard and magnificent Harewood to Wilberforce House in Hull and the Bronte parsonage at Haworth – enhanced with photographs selected by the editors of Reader’s Digest.
