Item description for Fertile Fortune: The Story of Tyntesfield by James Miller...
Since its acquisition in 2002, Tyntesfield has become one of the crown jewels of the National Trust. Situated on a ridge overlooking the magnificent Land Yeo Valley, it is one of the last of the great country houses build in the Victorian High Gothic style. Today, it survives intact with visitors able to view its unrivalled collection of Victorian decorative arts as well as its sumptuously ornate private chapel. Fertile Fortune offers readers a private tour of this magnificent house; as it does so, it traces the fascinating story of the Gibbs family and the fortune that allowed them to build and maintain Tyntesfield. Awash in beautiful images, this is a grand pictorial study of a Victorian treasure.
