  • Newcastle's Grainger Townby Fiona Cullen; David Lovie

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 5.82

    Grainger Town is as much an idea as it is a place. It is an important phenomenon, both historically and in today?s debate about conservation in our cities and towns. Richard Grainger, a native of Newcastle and a builder and speculator unparalleled in the region, in the middle decades of the 19th century co-ordinated a radical re-planning that turned... 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...

  • Gatesheadby Simon Taylor; David Lovie

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 5.82

    Gateshead has often been overshadowed by Newcastle, its northern neighbour across the River Tyne, yet its history is full of fascinating insights into the way in which a northern industrial town experienced the 19th and 20th centuries. This book explores this period of great change through a study of the town's everyday historic landscape. The story... more...

  • Manchester: The warehouse legacyby Simon Taylor; Malcolm Cooper; P S Barnwell

    English Heritage Publishing 2015; US$ 5.82

    Manchester is known for its cotton mills, the Town Hall and its imposing commercial architecture, but it is textile warehouses that provide the distinctive element in its streetscape and make it unlike any other town in England. These warehouses were only built during the century following 1825 - a relatively short time in the history of Manchester... more...
