Sure, Wil­liam Glad­stone served a record four terms as prime min­is­ter and gave us the mod­ern civil ser­vice and ju­di­ciary, but to us he will al­ways be the man who founded the UK’s only res­i­den­tial li­brary. The Grade I-listed memo­rial to his life’s work sits in sump­tu­ous Flintshire sur­rounds, with 26 bed­rooms and 250,000 op­tions for bed­time read­ing.
