British architectural history has bequeathed to the modern age a rich tapestry of styles, one that can all too easily be taken for granted. Each of our towns represents a unique and irreplaceable combination of architectural modes determined by regional landscape, economics, climate and how all these have changed over Britain's long history. Each has also been shaped by shifts in style on a broader scale: from the classically-inspired architecture of the Georgians to the Victorian gothic revival, and from Edwardian baroque to the stark minimalism of the 1960s, our buildings have been created in many images while being given their own distinctive regional twists. Each of these is expertly introduced and explained in this beautifully illustrated account.
