This captivating book, fully revised and updated and featuring more NT houses than ever before, is a guide to some of the greatest architectural treasures of Britain, encompassing both interior and exterior design. This new edition is fully revised and updated, and includes entries for eight new properties including: Dyffryn, Eyam Hall, Goddards, Leith Hill Place, Stoneywell, Allan Bank, Belmont Tower and Dapdune Wharf. An entirely updated entry for Clandon is also included and covers the recent restoration work. The houses covered include spectacular mansions such as Petworth House and Waddesdon Manor, and more lowly dwellings such as the Birmingham Back to Backs and estate villages like Blaise Hamlet, near Bristol. In addition to houses, the book also covers fascinating buildings as diverse as churches, windmills, dovecotes, castles, follies, barns and even pubs. The book also acts as an overview of the country's architectural history, with every period covered, from the medieval stronghold of Bodiam Castle to the clean-lined Modernism of The Homewood. The book teems with stories of the people who lived and worked in these buildings: wealthy collectors (Charles Wade at Snowshill), captains of industry (William Armstrong at Cragside), prime ministers (Winston Churchill at Chartwell) and pop stars (John Lennon at Mendips). Written in evocative, imaginative prose and illustrated with glorious images from the National Trust's photographic library, this book is an essential guide to the built heritage of England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This absorbing book covers both great mansions, such as Petworth House in Sussex, and less grand but nevertheless unique buildings in the care of the National Trust. It travels the length and breadth of the British Isles, presenting buildings ranging from stunning Cragside, rooted in the rugged Northumbrian landscape, to the rather more austere surroundings of the Workhouse in Southwell, Nottinghamshire, and beyond. Between them, these buildings have borne witness to a thousand years of history, from the time of William the Conqueror to the present day.

The third in the bestselling series of Houses of the National Trust and Gardens of the National Trust, this is a richly illustrated book providing new perspectives on the British landscape. From the dramatic hills of the Lake District to the mysterious fens of eastern England and the beaches and coves of Cornwall, landscapes provide the settings for our daily lives, as well as an important part of our identity. The inspiration for artists, writers and film-makers, our landscapes are cultural, man-made creations far more than we may be aware. But how much do we know about how these landscapes came into being? How were different sorts of landscapes valued in the past? And how can landscapes today and in the future best adapt to the ever-changing world in which we live? Chapters include The Art of Landscape, Ancient Places, Homes and Gardens, Lost in the Woods, Open Country and Shifting Shores. Landscapes of the National Trust will appeal to all those who care about the past, present and future of the British landscape and is superbly illustrated throughout with stunning photographs.

When the National Trust decided to take on the care of gardens, the aim was that these would be the very best of their kind in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Trust now has the finest collection of gardens ever assembled under one ownership - the greatest in number, diversity, historic importance and quality. Taken together they contain the world's most important collection of cultivated plants, distinguished for their beauty, rarity, historical interest and scientific value. First published in 1996, this new edition has been substantially revised to showcase superb new photography, and to introduce recently acquired properties such as Greenway in Devon and the gardens of houses such as Red House in Kent and Tyntesfield in Somerset. Stephen Lacey paints a vivid picture of individual Trust gardens through historical and horticultural perspectives. He gives his personal take, describing the present state of each and placing it firmly within the context of gardening history in Britain. All the major periods are represented: a knot garden from a 1640 design at Moseley Old Hall in Staffordshire; magnificent eighteenth-century landscapes such as 'Capability' Brown's at Petworth in Sussex; Victorian Gardens like Biddulph Grange in Staffordshire, with its wealth of new plants introduced from all over the world; and the famous plantsmen's gardens of the last century, such as Nymans in Sussex, Sissinghurst Castle in Kent, and Hidcote in Gloucestershire.

Londons größter lebender Chronist über die »gay history« seiner Stadt Das römische Londinium war übersät mit »Wolfshöhlen«, Bordellen und heißen Bädern, in denen es hoch herging. Homosexualität galt als bewundernswert. Bis Kaiser Konstantin die Macht übernahm und mit seinen Mönchen und Missionaren für Ordnung sorgte. Zeiten der Toleranz wechselten mit Zeiten der Ächtung und Verfolgung. Heute gehört »queer London« zur britischen Hauptstadt wie Tower und Big Ben. Londons homosexuelle Szene ist die größte in Europa und eine der größten weltweit. Peter Ackroyd zeigt uns, wie seine Stadt sich diesen Platz erkämpft hat. Er zelebriert die Vielfältigkeit und Energie der Community, zeigt aber auch die Gefährdungen, denen sie zu allen Zeiten ausgesetzt war. »Ein absolut einzigartiges Leseerlebnis.« The Independent

Geschrieben in der Ich-Perspektive, beschreibt Defoe das Leben von Moll Flanders. Moll Flanders wächst als Waisenkind auf und wird zu einem beliebten Kind bei einigen reichen Familien. Als sie für das Waisenhaus zu alt wird, nimmt sie eine dieser Familien auf. Sie verliebt sich in den ältesten Sohn der Familie, der jedoch seine Liebe zu ihr nicht öffentlich machen kann, da sie nur ein Hausmädchen ist. Nimmt diese scheinbar hoffnungslose Romanze ein glückliches Ende? Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) war ein englischer Schriftsteller, der durch seinen Roman Robinson Crusoe weltberühmt wurde. Defoe gilt damit als einer der Begründer des englischen Romans."
