This beautifully produced new book looks at the histories of eight very ‑different houses, ranging in date from c.1250 to c.1865, which form part of the historic building collection of the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum in West Sussex. The author has cleverly interwoven information about the houses themselves (all of which may be visited) with much more general background about the people who have lived in the buildings over the centuries, breathing life into the fabric of the structures.
– fascinating insight into some of the most iconic buildings in the the South East
– indispensable to anyone visiting the houses.
– a rich source of information for all those interested in the history of the area and of Britain in general.
– worthy of a place on the bookshelf of students of architecture everywhere.
