7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. R. H. Winn on 10 Jan. 2011
Format: Paperback
I got a copy of the Pevsner Architectural Guide to Hull by David and Susan Neave Yale University Press for a mere £9.32 and I would strongly recommend it to everybody from Hull as it is a beautiful thing to behold. This book will have you a bit dewy-eyed as it has 250 solid pages devoted to building after building after building. I thought I knew Hull but this made me think again about so many parts of Hull which I just took for granted. Particularly strong was the level of vernacular detail which was superbly Hullish on the 10 recommended walks:

The Old Town: High St.
The Old Town: West of High St.
Waterfront
Queens Gardens & the Northern Suburb (Georgian)
City Centre West & Park St.
Beverley Road, Pearson Park & Spring Bank
The Avenues, Newland & Newland Park
West: Anlaby Rd & Hessle Rd.
East: Holderness Rd & Garden Village
Sutton-on-Hull

Recommended excursions:

Hessle & The Humber Bridge
Cottingham & the West Hull villages.
East of Hull: Hedon & Burton Constable
Beverley.

This is a beautiful book.
It is pocket size although full glos and so is a bit heavy but in a nice luxury sort of way!.
It has a decent intro about the history of Hull, enough to set the seen for the buildings, 1279 to present including the post war reconstruction for the 'most bombed' northern city in the second world war.
The intro and the section on the major buildings takes up 77 pages of the 250 pages. The walks take up the larger part of the book, it is an interesting way to explore the architecture of the area. I tried the walk around Pearson Park and the format works well, each notable building has a short entry with a few photographs, it made a very pleasant afternoon.To see one of the towers from the old town hall in Pearson Park is something, but to see a sketch of what the old town hall looked like realy brings things into perspective.Pearson Park needs saving it is brilliant. A good book to own if you live in the Hull area and have an interst in Architecture. It is not an history book though, No 1, the High Street gets no mention even though the famous waler Sir Samuel Standidge onced lived their.

I saw a good review of this boook in the Times. Living near Hull I fancied learning more about the city. The photographs and layout make this an attractive book to browse and I will undoubtedly be visiting Hull soon to complete some of the suggested walks.

Don't let the fact that a "new" Pevsner for East Riding was issued not that long ago - this is a completely separate and original book that stands up on it's own merits.
Whilst not perhaps as in depth as a classic Pevsner, it is very readable and nicely illustrated, and has some very interesting walks too.
It also includes sections on Hessle, Hedon, Beverley and Cottingham.
Highly recommended
