Norfolk : North West and South North-west and South Volume 2 Hardback
Part of the Pevsner Architectural Guides: Buildings of England series
In his second volume on Norfolk, Bill Wilson provides an enlightening and comprehensive survey from prehistoric times to the present day.
The magnificent remains of castles and priories stand alongside a wealth of medieval churches, richly decorated with wood and stone carving.
The seventeenth- and eighteenth-century treasures of King's Lynn are explored in detail, as well as the market towns of Swaffham and Wymondham.
The great country houses of Houghton and Holkham are famous for their lavish interiors and beautiful parkland, whilst the many villages show a humbler but no less appealing side of Norfolk architecture.
This revised and expanded volume is a recent addition to the famous Pevsner Architectural Guides, the fruit of extensive new research and deep local knowledge.
Numerous maps, plans and new photographs, full indexes and a glossary help to make this book indispensable for any lover of the county.
