Historic Family Homes & Gardens from the Air by Skyscan

Skyscan's third book of aerial photographs
chronicles 84 of Britain's historic houses from a uniquely personal viewpoint with an account from each owner of it's history and family anecdotes. Accompanying this is a stunning full page aerial photograph of each property, taken from airplanes and balloons to show the beautiful surroundings and set the scene. Smaller detail pictures of gardens, interiors and object d'art also help to give a well rounded account of each family home.

The houses are all members of the Historic Houses Association who provide an introduction and information on the efforts made by their members to preserve these small pockets of British history and traditions in the encroaching 21st century. Published in hardback, the book has 340 full colour illustrations over 192 pages and can be obtained from Skyscan for 10GBP plus postage ISBN 0-9531426-8-X.

Skyscan's previous books have included English Heritage from the Air about properties held for the nation by the English Heritage organisation (now Historic England) and The Secret Thames an aerial journey along the long distance footpath created by The Countryside Commission adjacent to Britain's premier river.

All images from these and other books are held in the Skyscan Archive, copies of photographs and books can be obtained from Skyscan
