North East and East Kent

£9.99

Product description

At the heart of this volume lies a discussion of Canterbury and its outstanding Cathedral, site of St Thomas a Becket's shrine and significant in countless ways for the history of medieval art and architecture but especially memorable for its stunning stained glass. Other churches vary from remains of St Augustine's early Anglo-Saxon mission churches to Pugin's St Augustine at Ramsgate. Smaller buildings demonstrate Kent's especially fine and varied mixture of materials: the native ragstone and flint, exceptionally good brick and tile, and timber-framed hall houses, indicative of Kent's wealth in the 15th century. But Kent looks towards the Continent too, its defensive and marine history marked by its medieval and sixteenth century castles - such as Deal and Chilham - and coastal towns and ports as different as Dover and Ramsgate.
Part of the Buildings of England series edited by Nikolaus Pevsner.
The unclipped dustjacket is worn with several tears. The hardback cover is bumped at the bottom front. The binding is sound. The pages are in very good condition.
Second edition published 1976.
