Description

STATELY HOMES ALONE The three counties of north west England – Lancashire, Cheshire and Cumbria – contain some of the most handsome and historic country houses in Britain. As they seek to bounce back from the Covid-19 pandemic that has devastated their income, Barry McLoughlin profiles fifteen of the region’s finest stately homes, plus one spectacular castle. They span a millennium stretching from the medieval to the Edwardian, with Tudor, Jacobean, Georgian and Gothic Revival in between. What they have in common is that they are all independently run, whether by the original owning families, or by trusts or local authorities. First featured in Choice magazine, they range from the highprofile, with tens of thousands of annual visitors, to the smaller and quirkier, but their walls are often permeated by centuries of intrigue, politicking, dynastic struggle and religious persecution. The book also features two neo-classical houses off the tourist trail, and one building that has vanished altogether. You’ll learn about their history from the author’s richly detailed descriptions, their sometimes eccentric owners, their gardens and ghosts, their restoration and how to visit them. Fully illustrated, the book is the perfect companion on a visit to some of the North West’s most memorable mansions.
