Overview

Overview

This is a thoroughly revised and updated edition of KEITH SPENCE's essential guide to two of the most beautiful - and often still unspoiled - counties in England, which on its first publication quickly established itself as the best available guide to the area.

Mr Spence shows how much as yet survives and how rich, varied and fascinating this part of England still is. He writes sensitively and knowledgeably about buildings and architecture, and has a keen sense of the detail that gives identity to a place. There is much to be learned from this book, which maintains the high standard of the Companion Guide series. OBSERVER

Reviews

Spence (is) a good companion, brisk and amusing. There are still stretches of ravishing beauty and corners of great architectural and historical interest, with plenty of surprises and anecdotes to go with them and new things I found delightful on nearly every page. I learnt a lot and intend to carry the book around and learn more. TABLET (Isabel Quigly) Keith Spence shows how much as yet survives and how rich and fascinating this part of England still is. He writes sensitively and knowledgeably about buildings and architecture, and has a keen sense of the detail that gives identity to a place. OBSERVERIt is (in) the penetration into the small and remainingly typicalaspects of the two counties that Keith Spence so informatively indulges.This book is a delight for all who live in or visit this yet typicalarea of England.
