Intended for those who have visited country houses in Britain and wondered why they ceased to be homes, this title uses the real-life period drama of Johnny Arkwright (1833-1905) to illustrate how landowners saw their world disintegrate and disappear. It rescues our national treasures from nostalgia and repopulates them with real people.
