Fully revised, updated, and expanded, this book offers a fresh and comprehensive account of the buildings of Dorset, one of England’s best-loved and most beautiful counties. With its wonderful variety of building stones, Dorset offers visual pleasures which few English counties can match. Its country houses are exceptionally rich and varied, from medieval Woodsford and Athelhampton to the late Victorian splendors of Norman Shaw’s Bryanston. Highlights among the churches include the former abbeys of Sherborne, Wimborne, and Milton. Towns include the mid-Georgian showpiece of Blandford Forum, the seaside resort of Weymouth, and ports large and small, from busy Poole to charming Lyme Regis. Featuring all new color photography, this volume is the ideal guide to one of the most architecturally rewarding regions in England.
 

Michael Hill is an independent scholar based in south-west England.  John Newman is the former associate editor of the Buildings of England series, and co-author of the original (1972) edition. Nikolaus Pevsner was the series founder.
