Barrow-in-Furness in 50 Buildings

Availability: In stock

Barrow-in-Furness has a proud and distinctive identity, embodied in the many fine buildings that have shaped this Cumbrian town. At first glance it appears to be seated firmly in the nineteenth century, but a closer inspection reveals an architectural heritage that reaches back much further than the Victorian era.

Barrow-in-Furness in 50 Buildings explores the history of this rich and vibrant community through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From the Perpendicular-style Furness Abbey to the Gothic Town Hall, and from the Beaux Arts Public Library to newer buildings that have attracted disdain from local residents, this study celebrates Barrow’s architectural heritage in a new and accessible way. Local historian Gill Jepson guides the reader on a tour of the town’s finest old buildings and modern architectural developments.
