Nonconformity flourished in the north of England from the 17th century. Great preachers found refuge in the area, new denominations arose in the growing population and many an early meeting-house remains as witness to an age of turbulence and enthusiasm. The history of more than three centuries is visible in the range of nonconformist buildings explored in this volume - from the earliest Puritan chapel to the magnificent edifices raised by 19th-century manufacturing moguls. This volume presents a full record of buildings. Some still stand, some have been rebuilt and in others the process of rebuilding continues. Sadly buildings have been lost, but the breadth of knowledge contained in this volume is an encouragement to campaign for the survival of this diverse aspect of English architecture.
