An English manor house represents an architectural ideal and for generations it has embodied civilized taste. These houses have formed a core part of Country Life features over the decades and this book contains fantastic photography of them. Cranborne, Canons Ashby, and Chastleton—houses of timeless charm and tranquility—are presented as are many houses that fell upon hard times only to rise again, such as Sissinghurst and Hidcote. The architects of the English manor house are many of the great names in the field and displayed here are examples by Lutyens, Blow, and Blomfield. The book is a magnificent reminder of the architectural glory of the English manor house and charts the evolution of their different styles.
