New Hall: The History of England in One House (Hardcover)
New Hall is one of the oldest inhabited moated houses in England. Built of local sandstone and warm Midlands brick, it sits in what was once the vast hunting forests of Sutton Chase, in the ancient county of Warwickshire. Sir Nicholas Pevsner, the great 20th century British architectural historian, recorded New Hall as 'a major mansion in a moat'.
