This beautifully illustrated book tells the stories behind 60 remarkable buildings in the National Trust's care, chosen by expert curators from the many thousands of National Trust properties across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Spanning 900 years of history, the selection ranges from a 13th-century tithe barn in Oxfordshire to a 20th-century suburban semi in Liverpool; from a medieval manor house in Herefordshire to a Victorian lighthouse in Tyne and Wear; from an Arts and Crafts village in County Antrim to an atomic research facility in Suffolk. 60 Remarkable Buildings of the National Trust has an introduction by architect and television presenter George Clarke and concludes with a useful illustrated glossary of specialist terms and architectural features.
