Buildings of England Leicestershire and Rutland

Hardback in AS NEW condition.  Nikolaus Pevsner Second Edition revised by Elizabeth Williamson. Published by Yale University Press 2003. 

Pevsner wrote that "Leicestershire is not a county of extremes" and agreed that "no other county in England surpasses Rutland for unspoiled quiet charm". The large and the small Midland county possess a varied and rewarding range of buildings. Church architecture encompasses the classical Normanton, preserved in remote isolation from the flood of Rutland Water, to Market Harborough with its elegant medieval steeple, and a fine group of Victorian churches in Leicester.

The major country houses include Belvoir Castle, Staunton Harold and Burley-on-the-Hill, while the more modest homes of the late 19th century include notable work by Ernest Gimson,Voysey and a garden city at Leicester by Parker & Unwin. Leicestershire also posseses fine modern buildings, from its architecturally progressive schools to the justly renowned buildings of Leicester University, dominated by Stirling & Gowan's Engineering Building.
