The Architectural Handbook and Conservation Guide, which was written by Neil Coe a few years ago, is now available in digital format.

It contains a wealth of information on the history of the estate and the architectural features of the cottages, which is most useful when planning alterations.

It is divided in 3 rather large files, so please be patient when downloading them!

It is kindly requested that the historic photographs and maps are not reproduced, and please note that the book was written many years ago and some the conservation concerns have lessened, with the Article 4 protection and changing attitudes leading to more recent enhancements in conservation and to the appearance of the estate.
