Overview

Avebury Manor in Wiltshire has been home to many different families since it was built in the 1550s, including the marmalade magnate Alexander Keiller, who excavated Avebury's famous stone circle in the 1930s.

Avebury Manor is a classic English manor house, but when it was acquired by the National Trust in 1991, it had almost no contents. So in 2011, in a pioneering partnership between the BBC and the Trust, the house was transformed to reflect how it might have looked at five key moments in its history: Tudor, Queen Anne, Georgian, Victorian and Art Deco.

A team of historians, craftspeople and volunteers researched the manor house's history, and redecorated and refurnished the main rooms in an appropriate style.

This guide contains a fascinating account of this unique experiment. It tells the stories of those who have lived here, together with detailed descriptions of the re-created interiors, floor plans of the house, a timeline and numerous illustrations.
