A comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the buildings in one of the best-loved and most beautiful areas of England. Major buildings include great medieval wool churches and grand country houses such as Badminton and Dyrham, besides some remarkable relics of the early Industrial Revoltion and much fine work by the Arts and Crafts Movement. The architecture of such celebrated towns as Cirencester and Chipping Campden is covered in depth, as are the many villages and smaller houses. An expert overview is given in the introduction, which also surveys the rich prehistoric and Roman remains and the subtleties of the famous Cotswold stone. This revised and expanded volume is the latest addition to the famous Pevsner Architectural Guides, the fruit of extensive new research and deep local knowledge. Numerous maps, plans and new photographs, full indexes and a glossary help make this the indispensable guide for any lover of the Cotswolds.
