This work covers the English county of Berkshire. Stretching from the fringes of London, Berkshire originally covered much of present day Oxfordshire. The variety of architecture is, consequently, broad and remarkable, from the towns of the home counties to the farmhouses and churches of its west.
Geoffrey Tyack lives in Oxford and teaches architectural history at the university. Simon Bradley is the author of the Westminster and City of London volumes of the Buildings of England. Nikolaus Pevsner was the series founder.
