YORKSHIRE: Discover Britain's Historic Houses

SIMON JENKINS    Book Number: 91687    Product format: Hardback

A beautifully bound large hardback with spectacular colour photography throughout and map presenting Yorkshire's 92 most impressive, interesting or unusual dwellings, from Castle Howard and magnificent Harewood to Wilberforce House in Hull and the Brontë parsonage at Haworth. Hidden away in a cul-de-sac through a characterless housing estate we find Longley Old Hall in Huddersfield, a much-restored Jacobean house with an earlier medieval house revealed inside. In Sheffield we find the Bishops' House, a medieval farmhouse surviving in a suburban park. In York, Clifford's Tower, the Keep of the city's medieval castle. At Thirsk James Herriot's house, now a museum. Visit the Ryedale Folk Museum, the curious Georgian home set into a cliff face Knaresborough House near Harrogate, the Italianate grounds and private chapel at Broughton Hall or the vaulted ceiling with chamfered ribs and heavy round pillars typical of Norman architecture at Burton Agnes manor house near Bridlington. With useful timeline, organised by geographical areas East Riding, North Yorkshire, York City, South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire plus contact details and hundreds of glamorous colour images throughout. 192pp, 28 x 22cm.
