Restoration: Discovering Britain's Hidden Architectural Treasures

Front Cover
Headline, 2003 - Architecture - 224 pages
Accompanying a BBC2 series looking for the buildings most deserving of preservation and saving one for posterity, this volume paints a complete portrait of the United Kingdom's architectural heritage and offers an introduction to the buildings of England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Every style of building is featured—from crofts to castles, swimming baths to chapels—dating from medieval times right up to the 20th century. Illustrated with photographs taken for the series, Restoration both describes some of the country's most interesting buildings, and seeks to inspire us to preserve our architecture.
