Overview

The English Buildings Book is the most comprehensive single volume on English architecture for the general reader and architectural historian alike. It is a visual cornucopia and a tribute to the diversity of the English built environment, which is among the richest and most diverse in the world.

Where most general books on English buildings are arranged chronologically, The English Buildings Book is arranged by building type and use. A series of chapters deals with distinct groups of buildings, from parish churches to railway stations. This arrangement makes the book a more useful and easily navigated reference guide for the reader.

The English Buildings Book is truly broad in its coverage. Over 700 buildings are described and illustrated, and they range from the architectural icons - such as castles, cathedrals, and country houses - to the less noticeable but equally fascinating buildings of England's towns and villages - parish churches and meeting houses, shops and hotels, town halls and market halls, windmills and lighthouses, barns and bars. Nowhere else can such diverse coverage be found.
