Lavishly illustrated with over 150 images - photographs, Victorian prints and specially-drawn plans - this is more than a guide or gazetteer. It is a comprehensive introduction to the rich heritage of Lancashire's country houses, from the twelfth to the twentieth centuries. John Champness provides a lucid account of how and why the layout and decorative details of these houses evolved, how they reflected the attitudes and ambitions of their owners, and how they were built and financed. This book is the product of thirty years' research; it was completed shortly before the author's untimely death. Lancashire's architectural heritage has long been underappreciated - John Champness was one of the foremost experts on the subject. This wonderful book is his legacy.
