Essays by a number of distinguished architectural historians (including Dorothy Stroud and Rudolf Wittkower) mainly on aspects of the north of England’s architectural heritage. All the authors were at the time lecturing or studying at the York Summer School of Architectural Study, a progressive venture for its time aimed at giving architectural students practical experience of making measured drawings of various types of historic buildings, as well as providing courses for established architects and surveyors on the conservation and repair of ancient buildings.
