Nowadays many of Gibsides buildings lie in ruins. But this was once a grand Georgian estate, home to one of the most powerful families in England, the Bowes. This guidebook reveals how they built their fortune and Gibside and the scandalous tale of how one, the Unhappy Countess Mary Eleanor, was held captive here by her deceitful husband, Stoney Bowes. These pages also offer an insight into Gibside today: the wildlife that now calls it home; a handy Spotters Guide to some of the estates lesser-spotted features that can be ticked off during your visit; and the initiatives the National Trust is taking to create a peaceful retreat for visitors and nature.
