This book reveals the decorative and architectural richness to be found in the English country house. Changing styles are traced from medieval manors to Baroque constructions and the Georgian period. The work of the most influential architects from Inigo Jones to Robert Adam is discussed, and the treasures in their creations captured. Drawing on houses from all over England, including Castle Howard in Yorkshire and Stourhead in Wiltshire, the English heritage is explored.
