The landscapes of Lancashire range from the shores of Morecambe Bay and the wild Forest of Bowland in the north to the coastal flatlands and Pennine mill towns in the south. Lancaster, the historic county town, boasts some of the finest Georgian buildings in northern England, while Blackpool is unrivaled anywhere for spectacular seaside architecture.

 

Lancashire treats each city, town, and village in the county in a detailed gazetteer. An expert general introduction provides a historical and artistic overview. Numerous maps and plans, over a hundred new color photographs, full indexes, and an illustrated glossary help to make this book invaluable as both reference work and guide.

Clare Hartwell is an architectural historian based in Manchester. She is the author of Lancashire: Manchester and the South East in the Buildings of England series and the Pevsner City Guide to Manchester, both published by Yale University Press.
