Champagne & Shambles : The Arkwrights & the Country House in Crisis, Hardback Book

Champagne & Shambles : The Arkwrights & the Country House in Crisis Hardback



In January 1870, Johnny Arkwright was the largest landowner in Herefordshire.

From the processions and balls which celebrated his coming of age, to facing financial ruin at his own sons birthday and the eventual sale of the estate, this book shows, through the example of a prominent family, the downfall of the landed classes.
