This volume is a fully expanded and revised architectural guide to the greater part of Oxfordshire, based on Jennifer Sherwood’s 1970s account, full of new information and with specially commissioned photography.The vernacular architecture of the villages and farms is well represented here, as well as notable town architecture and the medieval parish churches for which the area is well known. Oxfordshire is also a county of great houses, from the romantic medieval ruins of Minster Lovell to the late flowering of Lutyens’s 1930s Middleton Park; the grandest, however, is Blenheim Palace, the Baroque masterpiece designed by John Vanbrugh (1664–1726).

Alan Brooks is the author or co-author of four previous volumes in the revised Buildings of England series.
