Saving Wotton: The Remarkable Story of a Soane Country House
Wotton, in Wotton Underwood, Buckinghamshire, has been dealt many blows and survived them all. Today it is a blossoming country house with the mark of Sir John Soane's essential reconstructions after fire struck in 1820. In 1953 after being employed as a boy's boarding school the house was left empty. It was finally Elaine Brunner who brought the house back into it's origional state of grand beauty. Wotton's hardships and reconstructions are described and illustrated in a variety of ways.
This catalogue accompanied an exhibition at Sir John Soane's Museum in 2004.
