A superb book, the authors should be proud of themselves they have achieved a truly scholarly book , indeed they have produced a working document that can be used by the local authority, indeed all planners and conservation officers would benefit from this book and the application of the techniques employed. The authors have produced not only a local history book, but a conservation area appraisal of Burford itself.

This book should be required reading for all conservation and archaeological students and professionals, as well as any one interested in local history/archaeology etc.

And the publishers deserve congratulations too, for the superb design and production of the book, it really is a pleasure to read.

This guide is a well written and enjoyable read, and Bill Bryson agrees in his introduction. It covers the history and architecture of this beautiful and complex small Cotswold town succinctly and with great scholarship. Far more than just a guide but a perfect accompaniment to a visit, ideally digested beforehand.
