Cheshire : The Buildings of England Hardback
Part of the Pevsner Architectural Guides: Buildings of England series
A comprehensive guide to the buildings of Cheshire in all their variety, from Pennine villages to coastal plains and seaside resorts.
Chester, the regional capital and cathedral city, is famous for its Roman walls and black-and-white timber architecture, its noble Neoclassical monuments, and its unique medieval shopping 'rows' with their upper walkways.
But Cheshire is also a major industrial county, with spectacular and internationally significant mills and canal structures.
Specialist settlements include the famous railway borough of Crewe, the salt towns of Nantwich, Northwich and Middlewich, and Lord Leverhulme's celebrated garden suburb at Port Sunlight.
