Summary:This volume offers an enlightening introduction to the memorable and surprising buildings of one of England's least-known counties. Located in the center of England, Nottinghamshire boasts a rich history, including its storied connection to the legendary Robin Hood. Nottinghamshire features the exquisite medieval churches of Newark, Worksop Priory, and Southwell Minster. Country houses offer a fascinating range of architectural styles: Wollaton Hall shows Elizabethan architecture at its most fantastic, and Bunny Hall demonstrates the English Baroque at its most bizarre. Newstead Abbey, home of the poet Lord Byron, incorporates the haunting monastic ruins from a former Augustinian abbey. The city of Nottingham teems with Victorian and Edwardian commercial buildings, and is enlivened by a local tradition of first-rate Modernist architecture. With new color photography, maps, and illustrations, this volume is the ideal guide to one of England's most fascinating counties.
