House and Heritage is an ongoing project providing details of country houses across the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The emphasis is not necessarily on the most famous country houses but on those that have quietly faded from society.
Over time it is hoped to build up a comprehensive list of country houses with an insight into their glory days and how changes in modern times have affected their status.
Many of these country houses survive but an astounding number have been lost. The directory also covers some of those that were demolished for various reasons.
New content will be added regularly and details can be found in the recent posts section.
The site is purely a labour of love and is not a definitive guide to those houses featured. Where errors may have occurred please do not hesitate to get in touch.
