"The greatest endeavour of popular architectural scholarship in the world." -- Jonathan Meades, The Observer, 25th November 2001.
Pevsner completed his survey of England's buildings with Staffordshire. A county of striking contrasts, it includes the industrial towns that make up Stoke-on-Trent and much of the Black Country, but also the cathedral city of Lichfield, and the wild country of the Peak District and Cannock Chase. Staffordshire's best timber-framed houses rival those of Cheshire, while the local stone gives shape to country houses such as Shugborough, with its celebrated garden building, and to two neo-Gothic masterpiece churches, Pugin's Cheadle and Bodley's Hoar Cross. Modern buildings include the playful and inventive 1930s pavilions of Dudley Zoo.

In recent years, a programme of revising, updating and greatly expanding the books has been in progress. These books are in a larger format, contain many more pages and are much more comprehensive than the originals. Unfortunately Staffordshire hasn't yet been revised, and it could be perhaps as much as ten years or so before this happens. Meanwhile we have the present book which contains much that it still relevant, and it does confirm what a debt we owe to Nikolaus Pevsner for his pioneering work.
