The Buildings of Georgian Lancaster

Book coverThe Georgian buildings of Lancaster have not hitherto received the attention they deserve, a state of affairs which this book sets out to address. A long vernacular tradition of stone building, enhanced by the qualities of Lancaster stone, was followed by a short period of prosperity, resulting from a lucrative trade with the West Indies, at a time of general good taste.

A slump in the nineteenth century, with a consequent lack of large-scale rebuilding, has left Lancaster with an exceptional range of houses and public buildings dating between 1715 and 1830. The abiding memory of Lancaster is of a Georgian town.
