  • Ancoatsby Michael E Rose; Keith Falconer; Julian Holder

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 10.19

    First hailed as a wonder of the new industrial world, to later 19th-century commentators the name Ancoats became synonymous with dark satanic mills and urban poverty. This book intends to raise awareness of the wide range and varied character of the historic mills, buildings and canals which constitute the Ancoats townscape, and the forces and trends... more...

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 10.19

    Blackpool is Britain?s favourite seaside resort.

  • Places of Health and Amusementby Katy Layton-Jones; Robert Lee

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 10.19

    This book explores the rich legacy of parks in Liverpool, from the forgotten open spaces of the 18th century town, through the pioneering creation of a ‘ribbon of parks? in the 19th century, a period of decline after the Second World War, to the situation today. Attractively illustrated with archive and contemporary photographs and drawings, the book... more...

  • Religion and Place in Leedsby John Minnis; Trevor Mitchell

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 5.82

    Religious and cultural diversity has been a key feature of the city of Leeds for almost 200 years and has resulted in the building of many fine churches, chapels and synagogues; these are now joined by mosques, gurdwaras and a mandir. Tracing the architectural response to the changing conditions of the inner city and suburbs, this book examines the... more...

  • Behind the Veneerby Joanna Smith; Ray Rogers

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 5.82

    South Shoreditch lies just north of the City of London, at the centre of a band that has become known as the ‘City Fringe?. The area?s greatest architectural legacy arises from the furniture trade and for almost a century – from the mid-19th to the mid-20th - Shoreditch dominated the industry as the major centre of furniture manufacturing and wholesale... more...

  • Building a Better Societyby Colum Giles

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 10.19

    Liverpool?s landscape, both in the city centre and throughout its historic suburbs, is studded with institutional buildings, some – like the great hospitals - very prominent, others – like Sunday Schools and chapels – punctuating ordinary street scenes. All, however, tell the story of how charity and public authorities responded to the desperate need... more...

  • Built on Commerceby Joseph Sharples; John Stonard

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 10.19

    The vast trade which passed through Liverpool?s historic docks was managed and organised in an increasingly specialised and sophisticated business district. New and ever-larger offices, banks, warehouses and salerooms, often innovative in design and of spectacular architectural quality, were built in a highly concentrated area, which powerfully represents... more...

  • Religion and Placeby Sarah Brown; Peter de Figueiredo

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 10.19

    From unpromising beginnings as a small fishing port with only one church, Liverpool grew to be a city of churches and chapels. By 1900 a Liverpool resident need walk no more than a couple of streets from home in order to go to church. While the Church of England built the most ambitious buildings on the most prominent sites, the Nonconformist denominations... more...

  • England's Schoolsby Elain Harwood

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 10.19

    For most of us, school was our first detailed experience of a building outside the homes of our parents, friends and relations. Many people react emotionally when their old school, charged with so many memories, is closed or demolished. Not all school buildings are worthy of designation, but many are major local landmarks and demonstrate an important... more...

  • Bridport and West Bayby Mike Williams

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 5.82

    Bridport is an industrial market town on the west Dorset coast which has played a pivotal role in the region's hemp and flax industry for over 700 years. The industrial heritage of this town is not widely known outside the area and very little has been published on the regional and national significance of Bridport. Hemp and flax was traditionally... more...
