'....sensitive sketches that capture the essence of the building or place....' -- Architects Journal, May 12 2005
'...likely to spark the reader into making a special effort to visit some of the buildings and places in question.' -- The Bury Times, January 21 2005
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.See all Product description
