From a period spanning three centuries (the 13th to the 15th) there remains a wealth not just of castles and ‘Gothic’ churches, manors and monasteries, inns and merchants’ houses, but also of field systems, tin-mines, schools and almshouses, shrines and tithe-barns. The book includes 160 entries covering over 200 sites grouped into eight geographical regions (including Scotland and Wales). Each contains a historical and architectural description and clear map directions, and is illustrated with photographs and drawings designed to reproduce the vigour and quality of the original compositions.”
