Description - Buildings of the Cotswolds by Denis Moriarty

Of all that England has to offer, the Cotswolds has some of the loveliest countryside and architecture. The key is limestone, the golden oolite of Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire with the tawny brown of Warwickshire. Buildings of the Cotswolds covers over a 100 Cotswold villages and towns: colour and mono-chrome photographs, specially taken for the book, highlight the fine detail of the buildings, the stone and its variations, the style of construction and local building specialities. Together with the vivid text they reveal features of manor houses, cottages, fine farm buildings with great tithe barns and churches, some dating from pre-Norman times. This is a highly informative and entertaining book which delight all who love this beautiful region.
