Revival Heritage – keeping designs from the past alive

January 18, 2013

Jack Hall’s Revival Heritage blog aims to revive the work of architects, designers and gardeners of the past 500 years.

On the blog, Jack will post visual evidence of lost country houses and estates plus other material that celebrates the work of artists, architects, designers, builders, carpenters & joiners, sculptors, masons and landscape designers / gardeners of the past 500 years.

The Revival Heritage flickr account is a treasure trove of historical material as the interior photographs below show.
