About Pevsner Guides

The Pevsner Architectural Guides were begun in 1951 by the architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner (1902–83) with the aim of providing an up-to-date portable guide to the most significant buildings in every part of the country, suitable for both general reader and specialist. The success of titles comprising The Buildings of England led to the extension of the series to Ireland, Scotland and Wales. There is an on-going programme of revision and updating with new volumes published every year. Each book provides an introductory overview of the architecture of the area, followed by a descriptive gazetteer arranged alphabetically by place. While cathedrals and their furnishings, great country houses and their parks form the grand set pieces, the books demonstrate the enjoyable diversity of architecture in the British Isles in accounts of rural churches and farmsteads, Victorian public buildings and industrial monuments.
