Cheltenham in 50 Buildings

Availability: Out of stock

From a small market town to its heyday as a fashionable watering place and recognition as ‘the most complete Regency town in Britain’, and through to its subsequent reinvention as a centre for religion, education, shopping and festivals, Cheltenham has a proud and distinctive identity. This extraordinary history is embodied in the buildings that have shaped the town. Well-known local author David Elder guides the reader on a tour of its greatest treasures, from the medieval church (now its Minster) to the Montpellier Rotunda, where a young Gustav Holst performed. In this unique study, he reveals that Cheltenham’s history is sometimes complex but never dull. Where else would you find, for example, the world’s first (outside London) purpose-built Masonic hall not far from one of the country’s most iconic buildings of the modern era, the GCHQ Doughnut?
