London by Bridget Cherry

Book Description

This 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 by 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 by Bridget Cherry 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.

Surrey by Bridget Cherry Surrey, Hardback (January 1971)

Surrey's architecture is a surprising mix of the rural and urban with many of its most important buildings, such as the 17th-century Ham House, found amongst the outgrowth of London itself. Included in this guide is a study of church architecture in Surrey.
