From the grand Norman naves and exceptional medieval monuments of Gloucester and Tewkesbury to the Victorian extravagance of Highnam church and the bold simplicity of Randall Wells's Kempley, the Vale of Gloucester is rich in ecclesiastical architecture. But buildings of all types are represented in this volume, including not only notable examples of timber-framed houses but also such eighteenth-century delights as the Gothic orangery at Frampton Court. The county's architecture is as varied as the medieval glories of Berkeley Castle, the Regency splendour of the spa town of Cheltenham, and the Severn Bridge, consummate expression of the engineer's art.
