Osterly House, interior, from Building England Part II
To whet your appetite, we have an exclusive clip from Part II in which Judith tours the grandiose Osterly Park. Located on the western outskirts of London – it’s a Tudor manor house magically transformed by the architectural star of the day, the Scotsman Robert Adam, in 1761, and designed specifically for the function of the 18th century: grand entertainment.
