One of the best-loved and most beautiful areas of England. Its major buildings include great medieval churches, built on the fortunes of the wool trade, and grand country houses such as Badminton and Dyrham, besides some remarkable relics of the early Industrial Revolution and much fine work by architects of the Arts and Crafts movement. The architecture of such celebrated towns as Cirencester and Chipping Campden is covered in depth, as are the wealth of villages, manor houses and farmsteads.

"Urdank has mastered an immense amount of material. . . . It is a valuable case study that will broaden and sharpen our understanding of religion in the early nineteenth century, as well as introduce much-needed new information."--Edward M. Cook, Jr., University of Chicago "A splendid job of reconstructing all the important social dimensions of this community. . . . This is a well-documented, readable, and thorough account of the ways in which religious conviction and its social environment interacted in an English village during the course of industrialization. . . . It provides a standard of methodological detail and sophistication as well as substantive conclusions against which to compare the results of other local studies and theories of a more general sort."--Robert Wuthnow, author of Meaning & Moral Order

Gloucestershire 2: The Vale and the Forest of Dean and its companion, Gloucestershire I: The Cotswolds, provide a lively and uniquely comprehensive guide to the architecture of Gloucestershire. Alan Brooks's extensively revised and expanded editions of David Verey's original volumes bring together the latest research on a county unusually rich in attractive and interesting buildings. The area covered lies on both sides of the River Severn, rising from flat alluvial lands to the lower slopes of the Cotswold Escarpment on the east and the rough wooded hills of the Forest of Dean on the Welsh border, with its distinctive industrial inheritance. Architecture is generally more varied and unpredictable than in the Cotswolds: stone, timber, brick and stucco all have local strongholds. The Vale is most famous for its two great churches, Gloucester Cathedral and Tewkesbury Abbey, both Norman buildings with brilliantly inventive late medieval modifications. The other major settlement is the spa town of Cheltenham, with its fine parades of Regency terraces. Country houses include Thornbury Castle, greatest of Early Tudor private houses, timber-framed manors such as Preston Court, and the extravagantly Neo-Gothic Toddington; churches range from the enigmatic Anglo-Saxon pair at Deerhurst to Randall Wells's Arts-and-Crafts experiment at Kempley. Amongst the memorable post-war landmarks are the suspension bridges and nuclear power stations on the banks of the Severn, and Aztec West, one of the best British business parks, on the northern fringes of Bristol. Visitors and residents alike will find their understanding and enjoyment of west Gloucestershire transformed by this book.

"With its gentle hills and timeless villages, the Cotswold countryside is a vision of rural calm, but the region's history reveals a darker picture. Over the centuries, people in the Cotswolds have known prosperity, but they have also experienced war, poverty, and despair. Lying between the provinces and the capital, the region has been home to kings and aristocrats, and has played a dramatic role in the story of Britain. Everywhere in the Cotswolds are reminders of the past: prehistoric monuments, ruined Roman villas, and Tudor mansions. Wealthy medieval wool merchants paid for fine churches and manor houses. Later, the landscape was scarred by the English Civil War, while evidence of an industrial past can be seen in the mills and factories of the south-west. After the wool trade reached its peak in the fifteenth century, the fortunes of the Cotswolds suffered a slow decline. By the 1890s poverty was widespread and villages were sinking into picturesque decay. It was around this time that William Morris and his followers discovered the area and established thriving centers for Arts and Crafts. In the following century writers and artists moved to the Cotswolds and tourism gathered pace. Today, the region continues to attract visitors, as well as country-weekenders and celebrities. Observing such changes, and describing the landscape, has been a lively company of writers, artists, and musicians. Some belong to a particular place, while others have viewed the region as outsiders. In their writings, art, and music, they have all celebrated the distinctive character of the Cotswolds"--Provided by publisher.
