Bill Bryson loves our kitchen!
Our lovely kitchen has just appeared in the new book by well-known author Bill Bryson. The lavishly illustrated reprint of his 2010 book ‘At Home: A Short History of Private Lives,’ uses a full page illustration of the room as the heading to his chapter on the history of kitchens. The photograph itself was taken by Presteigne photographer Alex Ramsay, whose photographs of the inside of The Judge’s Lodging illustrated a stunning 12 page article in World of Interiors magazine only last year.
