The book is divided into six sections. First, Trevor Yorke looks at the changes in Tudor society and how this affected the housing of the period. The next chapter explains their structure and the different materials used. He goes on to explore the different styles of timber framed, brick and stone houses and the various details of their facades. Trevor then looks inside the houses, detailing their rooms, how they were used and the interior features. There is a chapter on Tudor gardens, outbuildings and gatehouses, and finally Trevor looks at the Tudor houses that have survived to this day. He describes how they have been altered over time, and how the Tudor style was revived by the Victorians and Edwardians.The book ends with a useful Places to Visit section, listing the addresses and websites of noteworthy Tudor houses and museums.
