“From the archives of Country Life. Here are all the best 20th century photographers......of Castle Howard and Seaton Delaval and also wonderful colour photographs taken as recently as 2005.

It is the fashion when reviewing the Aurum books to say that the old Country Life black and whites are more evocative than the modern colour photographs. This is not true of Vanbrugh...... The colour views of Vanbrugh’s buildings in their landscape reproduced here are breathtaking...” John Martin Robinson 2008
