The Architecture of Southern England is a personal anthology by John Julius Norwich of the finest and most fascinating buildings in the south of England.
It covers those twenty-four counties lying to the south, roughly speaking, of a line drawn from the Severn to the Wash, and comprises 1200 buildings.
The building are old and new, religious and secular. Despite occasional deviations in the direction of castles and follies, public monuments or village streets, Lord Norwich is primarily concerned with those classes of buildings in which the English architectural genius shows itself at its brilliant best : churches and cathedrals on the one hand, country and manor houses on the other.
The entries are grouped alphabetically in counties and for easy reference are suported by maps and an index.
