Kent: West and the Weald : The Buildings of England, Hardback Book

Kent: West and the Weald : The Buildings of England Hardback

Part of the Pevsner Architectural Guides: Buildings of England series

Description

An expanded and fully revised edition of John Newman's classic survey of the buildings of West Kent, first published in 1969.

Here is an extraordinary concentration of architecture of the first rank, and an immense variety of landscape and townscape, from the deep woods of the Weald to the shingles of Dungeness, the cathedral city of Rochester with its Norman castle, and the remarkable Georgian naval dockyard at Chatham.

Domestic buildings of note range from plentiful timber-framed hall houses to the Palladian masterpiece of Mereworth Castle and the planned modernist village of New Ash Green, as well as country houses on the grandest scale, such as Cobham Hall and Knole.

The parish churches can show rich and memorable work of almost every period, especially the middle ages and the Gothic Revival.

This new edition includes detailed explorations of many rewarding urban areas, and fresh perspectives on such famous landmarks as Ightham Mote, Sissinghurst and Hever Castle.
