This expertly revised and enlarged survey is the perfect architectural companion to one of England's most beautiful regions. From the misty Levels to the heights of Exmoor and the Mendips, the Somerset landscape is enriched by buildings of outstanding quality and interest. The early medieval ruins of Glastonbury Abbey and the Elizabethan great house of Montacute are among the finest works of their time. Also famous are the lavishly decorated church towers of the Perpendicular period, such as those at Taunton, Evercreech, and Huish Episcopi. Many of these churches serve towns and villages of exceptional charm, marked by an unusual diversity of building stones and materials. From Porlock to Burnham-on-Sea, the ports and resorts of the long coastline all have their own distinctive architectural inheritance. Well-kept vernacular houses and other rural buildings complete the inland picture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The old one, by Pevsner alone, was somewhat skimpy; Julian Orbach's revisit is huge, reflecting the architectural riches of the area, and there is wealth within - informative and scholarly text, handsome photographs.'-Penelope Lively, The Guardian -- Penelope Lively * The Guardian *
