A People's History of Gibside

"Gibside, once one of the finest landscapes of the Georgian era, is a lasting testament to hard graft: the miners who gouged the coal out of the ground, the workmen who moved huge weights of the earth, the carpenters, stonemasons, gardeners, servants, the men and women, the skilled and unskilled, the craftsmen and the labourers. Generations of the same families lived and worked on the estate, some spanning centuries." 

 

"The book begins with George Bowes, who inherited the estate in 1722, and takes us through the 300 years that finally brought Gibside into the safe hands of the National Trust."
