What an amazing book containing details of so many interesting houses - many that are quite unknown but very interesting. It is a must have for anyone interested in old houses. Where is volume 1 about Gloucestershire?
The book looks fascinating but the problem is with the design. The type face chosen is too small to read. All of my friends who bought this book have said the same. This book lies infuriating unread because of the small typeface. It is not an attractive book to look at, given that it is a fascinating subject.
A beautifully produced book with evocative photographs in black and white of an almost vanished era, well captured and enhanced with interviews with the farmers. A wonderful picture of farming life in the South Hams.
