Mark Rolle His Architectural Legacy in the Lower Otter Valley

This full colour publication is an illustrated account of the extensive building programme carried out on the Rolle Estate in the Otter Valley in the second half of the 19th century when it was owned by the Hon. Mark Rolle.  Most of these buildings are still well-maintained today.  Based on original research in the Estate archives, it shows how a large landed estate was managed at the time, and gives a contemporary and personal view of the key personalities, the difficulties they faced, and their achievements.
