Synopsis
Investigates the building of Cragside House by the Victorian architect Norman Shaw for the great armaments manufacturer Lord Armstrong. Begun as a relatively modest country retreat in 1863, the house was gradually added to as Armstrong’s activities expanded. Examines the significance of the different architectural styles employed and relates them to the way the house was used by Armstrong, his guests and servants.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
