Leading photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas and Detmar Blow, owner of Hilles House, discuss some of the houses featured in a new book, Secret Houses of the Cotswolds.

The book is authored by architectural historian Jeremy Musson with photography by Rittson Thomas. It is a tour of 20 castles, manor houses and 18th- and 19th-century mansions, including Daylesford, Stanway, Sudeley Castle and Hilles House. Hilles House is the work of Blow’s late grandfather, the celebrated Arts and Crafts architect also called Detmar Blow. The two will discuss Hilles House and some of the other houses featured in the book.

Rittson Thomas is one of the UK’s best known portrait photographers. He photographed the Queen and members of the royal household for his book, The Queen’s People. Other books include The Secret Gardeners and Secret Gardens of the Cotswolds.

Discussions are chaired by the prominent journalist and broadcaster Janet Street Porter.
