Given this, can I please absolutely implore the author to put all his measurements in Imperial first and, if he really must, metric in brackets. His insistence on measuring everything only in metric, including distances (have you ever looked at our road signs Mr Fisher?), make this wonderful, magnificent book almost unreadable for me.
Pevsner's 2016 editions use Imperial measurements with metric in brackets, so there's a very highly regarded precedent for this, if indeed one is needed.
Go on mate, do it for Britain!
Roll on January.
Update 8th December 2016. Previews are now available on Amazon, and unfortunately he's stuck with the metric measurements ("...Telford's 2.1m iron-trough aqueduct...") - Ugh!
