4.0 out of 5 stars A social history of a Cumberland family, 25 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pinecone (Hardcover)
A very readable account of the life of a remarkable woman set in the social life of her time: the Cumberland village in which she lived and the industrial background which was the source of her family fortune. The book does not intend to be a guide book to the church of St Mary, Wreay, but it describes how this Romanesque building came to be built in the 1840s and the sources of its amateur architect's inspiration. I was disappointed by the coloured plates and, although I appreciate that cost limited their size and number, I would contrast the photograph of the interior of the church with the monochrome picture of the same view in Pevsner's "Cumberland and Westmorland" which is so much clearer. Nevertheless this book would be a valuable addition to the library of anyone with an interest in Cumbria, church history or the industrial revolution and its effects in the North of England.
