Englands Thousand Best Houses by Simon Jenkins

I doubt if I shall be reading Englands Thousand Best Houses cover to cover, hence reviewing it although admittedly I have only read a small part. I dipped into it for the first time today (17/10/14) to read about Uppark House in Sussex. It did its job marvellously. The information was a nice amount - short enough to be readable in the car en route, but detailed enough to give me an idea of things to look out for when we arrived. Actually, it even contained some details not written on any of the info plaques (info which I confirmed with staff).

The only thing Englands Thousand Best Houses didnt tell me was how amazing the cafes cake would be! I opted not to carry it around with me, as its rather large and heavy (unavoidable for 1000 houses Id say) but it nevertheless undeniably enhanced my visit - especially as Im on too tight a budget to cough up for a guidebook on top of the entrance fee. All told, a perfect to keep in the car for those days out.

Differences Between Living in the US vs. the UK

Housing in the United Kingdom

The UK ranks in the top half of EU countries with regard to rooms per person, amenities, and quality of housing. Rapid population growth took place in the nineteenth century, particularly in cities. The new homes were arranged and funded via building societies that dealt directly with large contracting firms. People moved in so rapidly that there was not enough capital to build adequate housing for everyone, so low-income newcomers squeezed into increasingly overcrowded slums. Clean water, sanitation, and public health facilities were inadequate; the death rate was high, especially infant mortality, and tuberculosis among young adults.

Bungalows are low profiles types of housing, as are a lot of cottages, but the distinction comes between the style, history and the pricetag. Generally, bungalows are a lot cheaper than Cottages. A bungalow is essentially a subset of the set Cottage. Bungalows were created when British colonial administrators adapted the classic Indian style low roofs and porches built around them. They can either be detached or semi-detached.

  1. What are houses in England like? Most houses in England are made of stone or brick from the local area where the houses are built. The colours of the stones.

  2. My interest in social and cultural politics extends from my interest in genealogy and history, and how they project into today's Societies.
