This fourth paperback City Guide in the Buildings of England series covers Bristol, for many centuries England's second port, and in architectural terms still amongst its richest cities. Outstanding buildings remain of every century from Norman times onward. Medieval prosperity shows in the many churches, including the Cathedral and the stately St Mary Redcliffe, with their unforgettably ingenious vaults. Timber-framed houses large and small survive in quantity, as do large expanses of stone-built Georgian houses. their thrilling juxtapositions of streets and terraces. Clifton is famous too for Brunel's mighty suspension bridge, and the great engineer also left his mark at the Neo-Tudor Temple Meads station, the terminus of the Great Western Railway. Bristol's extensive quays and docks are now finding new uses: apartments and restaurants have colonized their intriguingly diverse warehouses, with adventurous new structures to fill the gaps.
