This essential volume on London architecture covers the boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey and Islington. Bridget Cherry gives an enlightening view of London's expansion northward from formal Georgian squares, to the hill towns of Hampstead and Highgate, from the regenerated industrial areas of Shoreditch and Clerkenwell to little known rural enclaves in Barnet and Enfield. The British Museum, the new British Library and St Pancras Station appear beside a fascinating range of lesser buildings which give character to London's many distinctive villages. Numerous maps and plans, over 100 specially taken photographs and full indexes make this volume invaluable as both reference book and guide for anyone interested in London.
