Cheltenham's lost heritage

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

At a conservative estimate, some 350 to 400 buildings of historical importance have been lost in Cheltenham over the last two centuries. Although this is only a fraction of the town's building stock, it has certainly left a visual impression of complete devastation in some areas. This visually stunning new book, written by architectural historian Oliver Bradbury, showcases over 100 of the best lost buildings - some well remembered and much missed, others completely forgotten. A huge range of illustrations, many paired as 'past and present', document the changing scene. Regency pastiche or rampaging Modernism: to choose from either presents a permanent dilemma for a town such as Cheltenham. This book examines just some of the architectural and planning decisions that have shaped the town we live in today, for better or worse.
Text and illustrations appear bright and unmarked; very light signs of shelfwear.
