Iím currently writing a history of Britainís early bungalows for Shire Books. Discard your preconceptions about elderly people and single-storey living Ė the first bungalows were fashionable weekend retreats for the Victorian servant-keeping classes.
2013 will also see publication of the two National Trust guidebooks Iíve written for Chastleton House in Oxfordshire and Lacock in Wiltshire Ė both fascinating properties well worth a visit.
