Stately Secrets: Behind-The-Scenes Stories from the Stately Homes of Britain by Richard



Everything is not always what it seems behind the doors of the stately homes of Britain, and it's often the stories that the tour guide didn't tell you as you wandered in wonderment around the grand houses that are the most revealing and entertaining. In this witty and irreverent book the Seventh Earl of Bradford uncovers the stories that you won't hear from the guide. Full of first-hand true tales told to Lord Bradford by his fellow peers, butlers, maids, gardeners and chauffeurs, Stately Secrets captures in brilliant, hilarious colour the real life behind the scenes - from Page 3 girls in the four-poster bedroom to the Countess surprised in her bath! About the Author Richard, Earl of Bradford, is a prominent media personality. He is the proprietor of Porters English Restaurant in Covent Garden, London, and is President of the Master Chefs of Great Britain, a Committee Member of the Restaurant Association of Great Britain, and President of the Wrekin Tourism Association and Wrekin Heritage. He writes a monthly column in the Express & Star, is a member of The Guild of Food Writers, and is the author of the forthcoming 'Porters English Cookery Bible,' isbn 1861057377, to be published in Autumn 2004.
