Windsor of the North
A History of Brougham Hall by Benjamin Furnival
“This is a delightful book, written with meticulous regard to research. A masterly and readable story from Benjamin Furnival.” Lord Steel of Aikwood in his foreword to ‘Windsor of the North’
A history filled with as much incident, excitement, romance and tradegy as any modern royal household could muster. A detailed and entertaining account of Cumbria’s most colourful country seat. Benjamin Furnival has written the definitive account of the Brougham Family’s changing fortunes – from royal patronage to shameful bankruptcy at the gaming tables of Monte Carlo. He takes us from the Roman Empire to the Saxon and Norman invasions, and through the dark ages and the Jacobite rebellion to the emergence of the Brougham family themselves. We see their wealth and influence continue to grow, but political and royal scandal is never far away.
