9780113000173: Salisbury - The Houses of Close

The serene aspect of Salisbury Close today, with genteel houses overlooking long vistas and level lawns, is largely a 17th- and 18th-century creation, but this architectural investigation of the buildings studies the history behind the facade. The generous scale and spacious layout belong to the grandiose scheme whereby, in the early 13th century, a new cathedral and close were built on this low-lying site in the meadows beside the River Avon. However, the ecclesiastical community for which this was to provide a perfect setting owed its form and organisation to the late llth century. This carefully studied and analysed inventory brings together a range of information from archives and records, illustrating it with drawings and photographs.
