Witley Court

Paperback / softback
Witley Court was one of the great country houses of England. After a devastating fire in 1937, it became one of the country's most spectacular ruins. In this vast 19th-century mansion life was lived on a grand scale, with week-long parties, glittering balls and Christmas trees hung with jewels. This new guide offers a tour and history of the house and gardens, which are now being restored, and is illustrated with historic photographs, reconstructions, maps and eyewitness accounts.
