Bargain Englands Maritime Heritage from the air Stockists

England has a long and historic relationship with the sea. The source of a bountiful harvest of seafood that has sustained the population it provides trade routes and a final line of defense against invasion. Throughout history it was the link in the empire that saw Britain emerge as the world's first great power. For some the sea has also provided the last view of home as emigration took them to far-flung corners of the world while for others perhaps fleeing religious or political persecution the sea offered a route to safety.For almost a century Aerofilms recorded Britain from the air and Peter Waller has delved through the Aerofilms archive held by Historic England to explore the country's maritime heritage. Alongside the photographs taken of the great castles and abbeys of the country Aerofilms also recorded industrial and commercial activity including the docks and ports that were an essential part of maintaining Britain's place in the world. He looks at how the docks and ports have evolved since the years immediately after World War I how traditional patterns of trade have changed how the Royal Navy has shrunk and how the leisure industry has come to dominate.Key Features:320 pagesPaperbackPublished in 2017

The result was the first of the master plans for post-war redevelopment of Britain’s bombed city centres.

Technology in the Country House Stockists

Visits to country houses are an important leisure pursuit throughout the British Isles not just to appreciate their superb architecture great paintings and elaborate furniture but also to experience something of the past life of our great families and their households. Mark Girouard suggested in Life in the English Country House that ‘even when the customs have gone the houses remain enriched by the accumulated alterations and often accumulated contents of several centuries. Abandoned lifestyles can be disinterred from them in much the same way as from the layers of an archaeological dig’.By the 19th century  life...
