Northumberland, Volume 15
Yale University Press, 1992 - Architecture - 704 pages
The county's varied military architecture, from Hadrian's Wall to Warkworth, contrasts with monastic ruins buried deep in the valleys of the Coquet and the Aln or standing by the sea at Holy Island and Tynemouth. This work also covers great country houses.
