Worcestershire : The Buildings of England, Hardback Book

Description

This expanded and updated guide to the buildings of Worcestershire encompasses the entire county, from the dramatic Malvern Hills through the Severn Valley to the fringes of the Cotswolds.

Medieval Worcestershire is represented by the fine Gothic cathedral of Worcester, the splendid remains of the abbeys and priories, and the many parish churches with their rich inheritance of Norman work.

Timber-framed houses are abundant. But Worcestershire is also a county of red brick and sandstone, with such fine country houses as Jacobean Westwood, Hanbury Hall, Hagley Hall, and Witley Court.

Among the towns are Stourport, the only English town created by the canals, the genteel spa resort at Great Malvern, and the leafy New Town at Redditch.
