Tour SurreySurrey (Pevsner Buildings of England S.) Tour Surrey. Surrey's architecture is a constantly surprising mix of the rural and urban with many of its most important buildings, such as the seventeenth-century Ham House, found amongst the outgrowth of London itself. The landscape gardens of Painshill and Claremont attest to Surrey's popularity in the eighteenth century and the county's enthusiasm for follies and remarkable garden buildings. More recent architecture includes notable early works by Lutyens, with gardens by Gertrude Jekyll, inspired by the rich stock of late medieval farmhouses and tile-hung cottages in the county's southern villages. Among interwar suburban housing there are some exceptional Modernist homes, such as The Homewood by Patrick Gwynne. Church architecture in Surrey includes work by all of the great names of the Gothic Revival; not least of its surprises is the luminous and spacious interior of Guildford Cathedral.

GuildfordGuildford: The Changing Face Guildford has seen so many changes and this new book reflects half a century of the events which have affected the town. Stanley Newman has brought together a wonderful collection of photographs and memories which reflect the alterations to the streets, buildings and other locations since the end of World War Two. Through this book readers will be able to recall the changes made to the town and how they have played their part in shaping the way Guildford looks at the start of the 21st century. The author has also included some photographs from much earlier days, to illustrate just what has been lost over the 20th century as a whole. He also focuses on some of the people who it has been his privilege to meet and who in one way or another have involved themselves in the life of Guildford..

Guildford and VillagesGuildford and Villages: Then and Now Tour Surrey. Guildford and Villages: Then and Now is just that, a look into the past comparing streets and buildings in the town and neighbouring villages with how they look today. David Rose has selected a wealth of photographs spanning more than 100 years and has revisited the very same locations today, standing, where possible, in exactly the same spot and taking his own pictures. The comparison provides a fascinating and sometimes startling record of the changes that have taken place, many within living memory. It is both an historical record and a nostalgic look at Guildford's best known streets and landmarks and its picturesque villages and beauty spots. Added to this is the author's extensive knowledge of local history, facts and stories that are woven into each caption.
