London by Bridget Cherry
Book DescriptionThis comprehensive architectural guide encompasses three centuries of metropolitan growth, spanning an area from Georgian St. Marylebone and the riverside terraces of Chelsea and Chiswick to Heathrow Airport and the outer fringes of Middlesex. Individual buildings to be explored range from homely medieval churches and farmhouses of once rural Middlesex villages to the stately Victorian cultural institutions which made South Kensington internationally famous. Country mansions of distinction - Burlington's Chiswick House, Soane's Pitshanger - still grace the outer areas, while from the last fifty years the varied and stimulating selection ranges from art deco factory and cinema to progressive social housing and the late-twentieth-century business park. A complete architectural guide to Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington & Chelsea, and Outer Westminster (St Marylebone and Paddington), this volume is fully illustrated with photographs, maps and plans.

Books By Author Bridget Cherry
Devon, Hardback (January 1989)
Exeter Cathedral is but the crowning glory of Devon's wealth of medieval churches, replete with sumptuous fittings and monuments. The county's peak of prosperity is reflected too in its castles, its secluded manor houses, and its scores of sturdily built farmhouses.
Hertfordshire, Hardback (January 1977)
Although so close to London this is still a rural area, with quiet country churches with fine monuments, timber-framed farmhouses, and some splendid country houses, of which the most celebrated is Cecil's Jacobean Hatfield House. Also included are St Albans, Hertford, and Hitchin.
Wiltshire, Hardback (January 1971)» View all books by Bridget Cherry
This guide shows that from prehistoric Stonehenge and Avebury to railway age Swindon, the rolling countryside of Wiltshire encompasses every aspect of English building. Thirteenth-century Salisbury cathedral is set in a spacious close, within a planned medieval town.
