Book Description

3 Aug 2010 Pevsner Architectural Guides: Buildings of England
The northern half of Hampshire covers territory ranging from the rolling chalk downland of the Test and Itchen valleys to the Wealden edge and the heathlands at the borders with Surrey and Berkshire. Winchester is not only unrivalled for medieval architecture but like many of the smaller towns, such as Alton and Alresford, has some of the most charming streets in the southern counties. The countryside is rich in small villages, with buildings of a delightful mix of timber-framing, brick, flint and tile, and an abundance of houses and gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement. There are fine country houses of every period, from the quiet grandeur of The Vyne to the Victorian showpiece of Highclere Castle. But the area also has late twentieth-century architecture of great distinction, much of it by the countys own architects, and several monuments of unique interest, from Jane Austens house at Chawton, to the spectacular French Imperial mausoleum at Farnborough Abbey and Stanley Spencers moving series of war paintings for the chapel at Burghclere.

A vastly expanded Pevsner on an important region and, in particular, an important cathedral city, adding greatly to the value of a visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide to North Hampshire 12 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having recently retired and deciding to look at some of the bits of North Hampshire (where we live) that we hadn't seen, this book has been invaluable. We have already visited several places praised in the book which we were unaware of, and our plan is to carry on seeking out some of these sites over time. Excellently written, well laid out and the map helps as well. Brilliant purchase - will probably buy similar ones for adjacent areas as well.
