The English landscape is steeped in ruins. Markers of the nation's rich and often turbulent history, ruins represent not only the passing of time but also the constant presence of the past. In English Ruins, renowned architectural historian Jeremy Musson explores some of England's most evocative derelict and abandoned buildings, from churches, castles and forts to country houses, industrial works and even entire villages. Following a wide-ranging introduction examining the role of the English ruin in defining the nation's identity, Musson surveys each of the featured sites, revealing its past, present and future in fascinating detail. Lavishly illustrated throughout with stunning images by Paul Barker, one of the country's foremost architectural photographers, English Ruins is an invaluable guide to a much-loved aspect of English history.
