Format: Hardcover
This book has an unexpected and invaluable practical use as I discovered this week. It has actually helped to save a fine Tudoresque pub called The White Bear which stands in a conservation area in Hendon, London. The building was bought by a developer with the sole purpose of knocking it down to build modern flats among Grade II listed and other protected buildings. The local planning committee was presented by local residents with this unique, authoritative and very readable book in support of the worthiness of the architecture of The White Bear, which is a good example of Tudoresque, but which the developer insultingly described as being 'only mock-Tudor'.

So the precedent is established for anyone who wishes to save a good old Tudoresque pub or other Tudoresque building from extinction. Get this book. It also provides a fascinating history of this very British, much-loved style that continues to be built and there are some great pictures. Thank you Andrew Ballantyne and Andrew Law. The White Bear lives on.
