Care for Victorian Houses

A series of eight-page A4 illustrated booklets for owners of Victorian and Edwardian houses.

Reading lists, addresses, places to visit and other useful information are also included to enable readers to carry out further research. Text by Kit Wedd. £3 each.... or look out for the special offer! You can also download our updated list of useful addresses. They change faster than we can reprint our booklets!
