Buildings in Derbyshire A Guide

£19.99

Product description

Amberley Publishing, Stroud, UK
Stone, Richard

Where and how we live says much about who we are as individuals. We can't talk to Bess of Hardwick, or Joseph Pickford, or a factory hand at Richard Arkwright's pioneering Cromford Mill. The Derbyshire they knew has all but disappeared, but seeing where and how they lived opens a window onto that vanished world. Buildings in Derbyshire: A Guide sets the main phases and styles of English architecture in their chronological sequence and historic context with specific reference to the buildings of the Peak County. Richard Stone asks what those buildings - from grand country seats to rustic cottages via castles, churches, schools, and mills - tell us about society. 'If only these walls could talk' is a commonly heard saying. Perhaps, if we understand the language, they can. This is architecture for local historians, for those who enjoy visiting historic houses and churches, and for all who simply love getting out and about in Derbyshire.

Paperback. Illustrated with black and white photographs throughout.
Condition: Very Good. Owner's inscription handwritten in ink on half-title. Otherwise clean and unmarked. Slight cracking to spine.
