Smythson Circle: Six Great English Houses by David Durant
[paperback]
£14.99

isbn 9780720613445  Peter Owen, 2011

This charts the creation of the first Renaissance buildings in England from 1541 to 1614 and describes how six great houses, including Wollaton, as well as Chatsworth and both Hardwick Halls, came to be built. Far from being a dry architectural study, this is a detective story and quintessentially Elizabethan drama, full of grand schemes and sometimes dashed hopes, taking in marital sagas, financial ruin, sudden fires and a cast of extraordinary characters. 256pp
