Reviews for Sporting Lodges
If you’re looking for something to relax with after a hard day’s stalk, you won’t do much better than Sporting Lodges. For those interested in the history of their sport, it provides an in-depth look at the history of the sporting lodges, complete with detailed and evocative pictures of some of the most interesting that our Nations estates great and small have to offer.
From the baronial extravagance of the Victorian highland lodge, to the modest thatched hut by the river, this is a fascinating history of sporting lodges. But it is much more; it is a social history of fieldsports looking at the way lodges transformed sport and were themselves affected by railways, roads and the huge social changes of the last century…An absorbing history and a great read.
