English Ruins

Last year the Towers was one of the buildings referrred to in some detail in the magisterial and sumptious volume called “Elizabethan Architecture” written by the doyen of architectural historians Mark Girouard. So we are delighted that the Towers is one of the 24 ruins featured in “English Ruins”, a work published last week.   The author is Jeremy Musson the delightful and distinguished architectural historian. The volume is an intelligently assembled collocation of evocative architectural delights with characteristically informed and thoughtful prose all elegantly crafted. The images which are the work of the renowned  architectural  photographer Paul Barker are penetratingly perceptive. The book is published by Merrell and available from amazon.co.uk   Buy it !
