Architectural History of Cornwall

A new book has seen a number of writers — including Patrick Newbury from Stoke Climsland — collaborate to give an architectural history of Cornwall.

Books on Cornish architectural history are few and far between and the new work is entitled ‘Celebrating Pevsner: new research on Cornish architecture’.

Books on the architectural history of the county are uncommon, a position in part corrected in 2014 with the publication of the revised ‘Buildings of England: Cornwall’. This volume, manfully reviewed by Peter Beacham between 2000 and 2014, will long be held as the authoritative account of architects and builders of Cornwall’s built environment.
