Essex, one the largest counties of England, stretches from the suburban fringes of East London to the fishing and sailing ports of Harwich and Maldon and the famous seaside resorts of Clacton, Frinton, and Southend. Its buildings encompass rich Roman survivals, powerful Norman architecture, and the remains of major Tudor and Jacobean country houses. Essex is first and foremost a county famed for its timber buildings, from the eleventh-century church at Greensted to the early and mighty barns at Cressing Temple, and a wealth of timber-framed medieval houses. Later periods have also made their contribution, from Georgian town houses to Victorian and Edwardian industrial and civic buildings, and from important exemplars of early Modern Movement architecture to the major monument of High Tech at Stansted Airport.

Review:

"...a seminal work, and local historians and academics will long be immensely indebted...for (Bettley's)painstaking research and lucid presentation."
-- Trans. of the London and Middlesex Archaeological Society, No. 58 (2007)

"If you own a copy of the 1954 Essex volume, keep it, for it is Pevsner at his best -- but to know the county as it stands today go out and buy this latest edition: it simply cannot be beaten." -- Cornerstone, Autumn 2007

'...to read a Pevsner guide is to discover familiar places in a
newly informed light, human history in all its beauty and confusion.' -- The Guardian, July 23, 2007

'James Bettley, editor for the revised Essex volume of the Buildings of England, is the right man to give proper weight to Victorian building activities in the county.' -- The Victorian, November 2007

'We should be grateful to Dr Bettley and Yale for continuing and expanding Pevsner's outstanding legacy.'
-- Andrew Derrick, Ecclesiology Today, Vol 39, Dec 2007

A book of this quality -- which does not merely confirm the
standards of the series, but sets new ones -- should make people rediscover
Essex. -- Literary Review, June 2007

Essex is an ancient and important county, which deserves to be
better understood, and there can be no better place to start than Dr.
Bettley's new Essex volume, another monument to the glorious Pevsner
tradition. -- Country Life, June 14, 2007

Synopsis:

Essex is one the largest counties of England, stretching from the suburban fringes of East London to the fishing and sailing ports of Harwich and Maldon and the famous seaside resorts of Clacton, Frinton and Southend. Its buildings are appropriately varied, encompassing rich Roman survivals at Colchester, powerful Norman architecture at Castle Hedingham and Waltham Abbey and the remains of major Tudor and Jacobean country houses such as Layer Marney Tower and the prodigious mansion at Audley End. Besides these highlights, Essex is first and foremost a county famed for its timber buildings, from the eleventh-century church at Greensted to the early and mighty barns at Cressing Temple, and everywhere visible in the wealth of timber-framed medieval houses in its scattered villages and market towns such as Saffron Walden and Coggeshall. Later periods have also made their contribution, from Georgian town houses to Victorian and Edwardian industrial and civic buildings, and from important exemplars of early Modern Movement architecture to the planned New Towns at Basildon and Harlow. Such diversity continues into the present with the major monument of High Tech at Stansted Airport.
