Full of memorable and surprising buildings, Nottinghamshire is a county that rewards close investigation. Great medieval churches are represented by Newark, Worksop Priory, and Southwell Minster, famous for its exquisite carved “leaves.”  Of the county’s country houses, Wollaton Hall shows Elizabethan architecture at its most fantastic, and Bunny Hall the English Baroque at its most bizarre, while Lord Byron’s Newstead Abbey romantically incorporates a monastic ruin. The city of Nottingham is brimming with sturdy Victorian and Edwardian commercial buildings and enlivened by a strong local tradition of first-rate Modernist architecture. This fully revised edition, featuring new color photography and plentiful maps and text illustrations, is the essential resource for visitors and residents alike.

Clare Hartwell is an independent architectural historian based in Derbyshire.
