Chosen as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2006 by Choice Magazine

This complete guide to the buildings of South-East Lancashire features the proud municipal buildings and pioneering mills and transport structures at the heart of the great industrial city of Manchester. The book also offers full accounts of the suburbs, the city of Salford, and the industrial towns of Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, and Oldham, each with its own tradition of civic buildings and its own crop of talented local architects.

A general introduction to the volume provides a historical and artistic overview of South-East Lancashire’s architecture, and each city, town, or village is treated in a detailed gazetteer. Numerous maps and plans, over 100 new color photographs, full indexes, and an illustrated glossary complete this invaluable guide.

Clare Hartwell and Matthew Hyde are architectural historians based in Manchester. Clare Hartwell is the author of Manchester in the Pevsner City Guides series. The late Nikolaus Pevsner was founding editor of the Pevsner Architectural Guides series.
