Nicholas Merchant on Yorkshire’s Country Houses
Yorkshire is fortunate to contain a vast number of country estates, each with a great house at its centre. At one time, a great chain of country houses existed from Burton Agnes in the east to Harewood in the west. Many did not survive the post-war period, being purposefully-destroyed by owners unable to afford their upkeep, making those that survived all the more special. Join local art and antiques expert Nicholas Merchant on a trip through some of Yorkshire’s finest houses.
