This books attempts to make Henry Woodyer (1816-1896) better known. His best works will stand comparison with those of the leading architects of the Gothic Revival and show a distinctive architectural personality. Yet he remains an obscure figure, perhaps from choice, he avoided publicity, joined no professional body,and would not enter competitions for public buildings. Woodyer lived and worked on his estate at Grafham near Guildfiord . He was responsible for 300 commissions, schools and churches and church restorations. He also had a long association with Hardman and Co stained glass makers. This book is a biographical catalogue of this work with contemporary drawings and photographs and extensive references.
