This new publication describes more than 400 of Devon’s most notable country houses in lively detail. Their owners & architectural history, their estates, ancillary buildings & gardens are all included. Over 1,000 old and new photographs, drawings, maps and sketch-plans, many published for the first time, illustrate the text.
The author spent 26 years working for the National Trust in Devon, responsible for its historic buildings, and 15 years researching the houses in these two volumes. Significantly, it is the first time that the county’s more obscure country houses, as well as the better-known ones, have been comprehensively recorded.
Two hardback volumes (each 303 x 213mm) complete with a slip-case. 1,204 pages in total.
