Brodsworth Hall is an astonishingly complete survival of a mid-Victorian house and gardens. Built by Charles Sabine Augustus Thellusson in the 1860s, its interiors and statuary reflect his sumptuous taste and fabulous wealth. The same family lived there, with a dwindling income and staff, until the end of the 20th century. Conserved as it was found, the hall and its restored ornamental gardens have a poignant atmosphere, evoking country-house life from its heyday to its gradual decline. This beautifully illustrated new guidebook contains a full tour and history of the house and includes many fascinating eyewitness accounts by those who lived and worked at Brodsworth.
