'Delightful' Daily Mail (Book of the Year) 'Goodwood curator James Peill writes with a wonderfully light touch . . . The Goodwood story is extraordinary and rightly celebrated' Country Life The history of Goodwood, England's greatest sporting estate Goodwood has been the home of English sport for centuries. The story of how a small hunting lodge became the iconic location for the globally-renowned Festival of Speed, Glorious Goodwood and Goodwood Revival events is inextricably intertwined with the tale of the Dukes of Richmond. The Dukes were, variously, patrons of the arts, political influencers, royal confidantes, architectural innovators, horticultural enthusiasts and stewards of the community. Above all, they were passionate about the sports for which Goodwood is best known: horseracing, motor sports, foxhunting, cricket, shooting and golf. Drawing upon the wealth of the Goodwood archives, James Peill vividly captures the character of each Duke, some radical and others staunchly traditional, and the wide-ranging impact they had on the Goodwood of today. The broader context is a sweeping history of England, and one family's part in it. Beginning with Charles II and his mistress Louise de Keroualle, the parents of the first Duke, Glorious Goodwood takes the reader on a journey through time, from the seventeenth century to present day, via the Jacobite Rising, the Battle of Waterloo and the First and Second World Wars. There are cameo appearances from George Stubbs, Canaletto, Alexander, Emperor of Russia, Queen Victoria, Jackie Stewart and Edward VII, who famously hosted Privy Council meetings in the Tapestry Drawing Room during race week. Glorious Goodwood is a vivid and intimate portrait of a house and its inhabitants set against a dazzling, panoramic backdrop of English history. At the heart of this colourful and compelling story is a rich sense of the British heritage Goodwood embodies.

Motor Racing at Goodwood in the Sixties

Ifall this delighted the enthusiast, the setting was pretty good as well. The
expression 'Glorious Goodwood' really refers to idyllic summer days at the horse
racing course just up the hill, but the motor circuit shared much of its rural
surroundings ...

The image of the Derby winner with his leg in plaster was broadcast around the world. Alongside Mill Reef stood a baby-faced man who had won the Arc, the King George, the Eclipse, and now the Derby. He trained for the Queen and Queen Mother; and Lester Piggott, Willie Carson and Frankie Dettori all rode for him, but where had he come from and how had he got there? Ian Balding's story is one of heartbreaking loss and outrageous good luck. He left Cambridge without a degree but with a rugby blue, and became one of the outstanding amateur sportsmen of his generation. Balding's burgeoning talent was quickly noticed and he was soon running Peter Hastings-Bass' stables at Kingsclere. Ian had no money and no experience of running a business, but he learnt fast. In Making the Running, Ian Balding reveals the pressure of maintaining the pace and shares the highs and lows of the sport of kings.

Bill Haywood, an English, working-class, Black Country lad, saw only a lifetime of factory drudgery as his fate when he was young. He left school at fifteen without any academic qualifications and entered the workforce with various engineering companies. For five years, he served in the Royal Air Force in the United Kingdom, Cyprus, and Malta. After his service, he was hired on at one of the largest engineering companies in the UK—Guest, Keen and Nettlefolds. At the age of thirty-six, while still working at GKN, he threw caution to the winds to attend Ruskin College, Oxford, to pursue a dream. At the age of thirty-nine, he earned the first of three university degrees, culminating in a doctorate at the age of forty-five. In this memoir, he expresses strong views that may challenge those who are unwilling to debate the issues, including the environment for education and the social situation in the UK, the apparent goals of the current government, and sport and sportsmanship. He has traveled the world and befriended interesting and stimulating people from places he never thought he would see with his own eyes. His is a journey of discovery, proof that life holds great potential for those who are willing to look beyond their immediate environment or circumstances. He hopes to encourage others to seek something beyond their current factory, office, or shop door, where a more satisfying future may await.

Description'Girl Power' by Lee Seymour is the follow up to 2008s debut "Hemiplegic Utopia." This is no sordid, kiss and tell collection, not by any means, nor a fight for female rights, but a very short, honest diary with a slight twist, recording a young mans quest in wanting to give ones heart away to somebody wholl accept him with all his traits, both good and bad, physical or otherwise. Afterall beauty is only skin deep. About the AuthorLee Seymour, born in Manchester on the 21st of April 1980, was diagnosed with Hemiplegia around eight months old, a case of minor left sided cerebral palsy, whose symptoms are often likened to someone having had a stroke. Knowing the dream to play professional football for Aberdeen could never be realised Lee quickly decided at an early age to turn his hand towards writing about the beautiful game not to mention his difficult childhood, in the hope it might give him the same satisfaction as fulfilling a career in soccer, and now has over 250 freelance junior/senior match reports printed by five different newspapers. He lives in The Scottish Borders and has two younger brothers Paul 25 and Craig 18.

DIV When travel journalist Sophie Campbell squeezed into heels and a hat to investigate the English social season, she got more than she bargained for. Why, she wondered, were events such as the Chelsea Flower Show, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Derby at Epsom, Royal Ascot, the Henley Royal Regatta, Wimbledon Fortnight and Glorious Goodwood so formal, so fashionable and so famous? Her hectic and sometimes hilarious journey through the English summer proved as exotic as any tribal rite of passage as she swam the River Thames in the dark, partied with owners and trainers at Ascot, camped out for Wimbledon, joined Irish Travellers at The Derby, infiltrated the parents’ stand at the Eton v Harrow cricket match and got caught using a mobile in the Stewards’ Enclosure at Henley. En route she found a fascinating and surprisingly complex social structure dating back to the time of the Stuart monarchs and involving fashion, food, art and the marriage market. The English summer will never be the same again. /div

The estate of Goodwood is glorious not only for its famous racecourse and motor racing circuit but also for its magnificent art collection. This superbly illustrated book reveals the treasures of Goodwood. Curator Rosemary Baird tells the story of the Dukes of Richmond, from the birth of the 1st Duke (son of Louise de Kéroualle and Charles II), who purchased Goodwood. She describes events such as the Duchess of Richmond's famous ball, from which officers were called to fight in the Battle of Waterloo ('some arrived at the field of battle in silk stockings and dancing shoes') and how, with wealth largely derived from a tax on coal leaving Newcastle, the Richmond family developed Goodwood and acquired works of art to adorn it. In particular the book focuses on the great 18th-century collections of the 2nd and 3rd Dukes. The 2nd Duke was a leading exponent of the Palladian movement, building Richmond House on the banks of the Thames at Whitehall as well as an extension to Goodwood. He commissioned from Canaletto two views of the Thames, which were painted from Richmond House. The 3rd Duke patronized some of the greatest painters and architects of the day – at the age of 24 he gave the unknown George Stubbs his first commission – and collected French furniture, tapestries and porcelain.
