Book Description

26 Nov 2004 Pevsner Architectural Guides: Buildings of England
A comprehensive guide to the buildings of South-East Lancashire. The heart is the great industrial city of Manchester, with its proud municipal buildings and pioneering mills and transport structures, offset by some of Britain's most innovative new architecture. Full accounts are given of the suburbs in all their variety, and of the separate City of Salford to the west. North and east of this metropolis are the industrial towns of Bolton, Bury, Rochdale and Oldham, each with its own tradition of civic buildings and crop of talented local architects. Around and between are the high moorland hills and steep Pennine valleys, with constantly surprising juxtapositions of rural, vernacular and industrial buildings. Also distinctive are the little-known late medieval churches and timber-framed country houses, their settings now often green again after the retreat of heavy industry. Each city, town or village is treated in a detailed gazetteer. A general introduction provides a historical and artistic overview. Numerous maps and plans, over 100 new colour photographs, full indexes and an illustrated glossary help to make this book invaluable as both reference work and guide.

Climb any tall building in the centre of Manchester or Salford -and there are more and more of them - and the half-circle of the Pennines that encloses the conurbation to the N and E comes into view. Read the first page
