About the Author

Stowe House's Chief Executive Officer Nick Morris, who has managed restoration work there for the past eight years, has drawn together contributions from leading experts to produce an authoritative work that looks behind the creation of the house, charts the continuing evolution of the site and demonstrates the care taken to ensure authenticity throughout the GBP40m restoration programme. As Stowe School's Operations Director from 2009 to 2017, he was closely involved in the School's building projects and management of the site and he now looks forward to completing the restoration and continuing to work closely with the School and the National Trust in that work and in presenting the House to the public.
