The Silent Houses of Britain hardback book


1991. 160pp hardback (out of print, limited copies available)



Alexander Creswell’s exceptional study of 45 once grand country homes languishing abandoned and forgotten, like Piranesi’s ivy-clad ruins of Ancient Rome. Creswell’s watercolours, sketches and accompanying text capture the distinctive atmosphere of these emotive mansions, celebrate the play of light on crumbling facades and ruined interiors, and, above all, offer a unique glimpse into a private world, showing what happens when Man moves out and Nature moves in.  160 illustrations
