The Nabobs of Berkshire and their houses: with Clive Williams

Nabobs were employees of the East India Company during the 18th and 19th centuries, who made their fortunes in India and returned home to England as wealthy men.  So many made their homes in Berkshire in the 18th century, at estates such as Englefield House, Purley Hall and Basildon Park, that the county became known as 'the English Hindoostan'.  Find out more in this fascinating talk.
