The Great House in the Twenty-first Century

Sir Simon Jenkins explores the circumstances of great houses in the twenty-first century

The issue is a pressing one. Over the last two centuries, Britain's historic houses have faced waves of threats. Those which survived have largely been taken into the guardianship of charities as museums, or have found alternative uses such as Stowe House, WMF Britain's major project in tandem with the National Trust's restoration of the gardens. Sir Simon, as Chairman of the National Trust, explores the circumstances, values and opportunities of great houses in the twenty-first century.
