Historic Houses and Castles

Throughout the British Isles there are buildings that have come to us down the centuries. Some of the castles date to before the Norman conquest whilst others were built in medieval times or even in the 20th century as country houses built in castle style.

Historic houses range from ancient cottages, often 'historic' not because there's anything exceptional about the houses themselves but because of who lived there, to majestic stately homes and palaces. In this section of the store we are building a catalogue of books which combine good illustration and photography with content written by knowledgeable authors. Watch out for more as we go along.
