Description

Black Diamonds Wentworth is in Yorkshire and was surrounded by 70 collieries employing tens of thousands of men. It is the finest and largest Georgian house in Britain andbelonged to the Fitzwilliam family.

It is England's forgotten palace which belonged to Britain's richest aristocrats. Black Diamonds tells the story of its demise: family feuds, forbidden love, class war, and a tragic and violent death played their part. But coal, one of the most emotive issues in twentieth century British politics, lies at its heart.

This is the extraordinary story of how the fabric of English society shifted beyond recognition in fifty turbulent years in the twentieth century.

    If you are interested in Historical Houses then this is the book for you! I live near this house and the book captures the whole mystery and intrigue of the whole area of Wentworth. It captures the mystery behind the Fitzwilliam Family and believe me the whole mystery and intrigue still exists today but this book helps you to imagine whats behind it all! Its a must read for any one not just people who are interested in History! It's a love story, murder mystery, factual, crime rolled into one. Enjoy!
