Tour NorfolkNorfolk: Norwich and North-east v. 1 (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) Tour Norfolk. This book aims to provide a lively and uniquely comprehensive survey of the architectural treasures of Norfolk. Extensively revised and expanded, these new editions of Sir Nikolaus Pevsner's original volumes bring together the latest research on a county which has some of the most attractive buildings in England. The gazetteer is enhanced by an introduction which provides a perceptive overview of the region's architectural inheritance, and is illustrated by numerous text figures, maps and 130 photographs (many specially commissioned). Pre-eminent in this volume is the city of Norwich, rich in major buildings of outstanding quality, from Norman cathedral and castle to twentieth-century city hall and university. Supreme among the ports described in this volume is the medieval walled town of Great Yarmouth, whose highly individual history and buildings are here examined in detail for the first time. There are also full descriptions of many appealing market towns, whilst the rest of the county is revealed through succinct accounts of its parish churches and less well-known buildings. Abbey ruins, brick eighteenth-century farmhouses and estate cottages in quiet inland villages contrast with coastal fishing settlements and resorts. Great barns testify to the significance of agriculture. Country houses range from the magnificent Jacobean Blickling Hall to seaside extravaganzas by Lutyens. Detailed indexes make this not only an essential reference book, but also a guide book for anyone interested in the rich region of Norfolk.

Norfolk BuildingsNorfolk: North-west and South v. 2 (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) Tour Norfolk, Bill Wilson provides an enlightening and comprehensive survey from prehistoric times to the present day. The magnificent remains of castles and priories stand alongside a wealth of medieval churches, richly decorated with wood and stone carving. The seventeenth and eighteenth century treasures of King's Lynn are explored in detail, as well as the market towns of Swaffham and Wymondham. The great country houses of Houghton and Holkham are famous for their lavish interiors and beautiful parkland, whilst the many villages show a humbler but no less appealing side of Norfolk architecture. This revised and expanded volume is a recent addition to the famous Pevsner Architectural Guides, the fruit of extensive new research and deep local knowledge. Maps, plans and new photographs, full indexes and a glossary help to make this book indispensable for any lover of the county.
