  Duchess of Bedford Friday 8 November 2002  
Endsleigh House, nestling deep in the Devon countryside, is one of the few places left untouched by modern life.

Built in 1810 by some of England's wealthiest aristocrats, the Duke and Duchess of Bedford, the history of Endsleigh is enmeshed with that of its controversial mistress.
Isobel Eaton went to meet Rachel Trethewey, the biographer of the Duchess.
Mistress of the Arts: the Passionate Life of Georgiana, Duchess of Bedford by Rachel Trethewey, Hardcover, ISBN: 0747254761
