Canterbury's Lost Heritage by Dave Kindred
Book DescriptionCanterbury is one of England's most historic cities. A rich heritage of medieval, Georgian and Victorian buildings survived until the mid-twentieth century, which brought wholescale destruction of much of the city's fabric. The bombing of 1942 caused much damage, but not as much as the empty sites of the late 1940s suggested. In fact, the ruthless post-war clearance saw more buildings destroyed by the local authority by than the Luftwaffe: all too often, minor damage was used as an excuse to demolish a building that was in the way of a proposed road-widening scheme. Throughout the 1950s and '60s demolition continued apace; it wasn't until the local government organisation of the early 1970s and the establishment of the city council conservation department that things began to change. Now, it can be argued that the pendulum has swung too far in the other direction: many important post-war buildings have already been replaced by overscale developments in a pastiche of various architectural styles. Paul Crampton, one of Canterbury's leading historians, has compiled over 250 photographs to illustrate a wide and varied selection of Canterbury's lost buildings, comparing historic views with the scene today.
