9780140710496: London 4: North (The Buildings of England) (v. 4)

This volume gives a view of London's expansion northward from formal Georgian squares, to the hill towns of Hampstead and Highgate, from the regenerated industrial areas of Shoreditch and Clerkenwell to the little-known rural enclaves in Barnet and Enfield. The British museum, the new British Library and St Pancras Station appear beside a fascinating range of lesser buildings which give character to London's many distinctive villages.
