This southern county has a splendidly varied range of fine buildings. Winchester, with its Cathedral, Castle, College and churches, has some of the finest medieval architecture in England. At Southampton the walled medieval port is still recognisable; in contrast, Portsmouth is of special interest for its extensive Georgian and Victorian dock buildings. The rich countryside abounds in attractive villages and small towns with notable churches and houses, from Norman Romsey Abbey and the quiet grandeur of The Vyne with its audacious portico by John Webb to the early nineteenth century Neo-Grecian of the Grange. Smaller delights include Jane Austen's house at Chawton and Stanley Spencer's unparalleled series of paintings in the Sandham Mermorial Chapel at Burghclere.

The Enclosure Maps Of England And Wales 1595 1918

This book offered the first comprehensive study of the enclosure mapping of England and Wales. Enclosure maps are fundamental sources of evidence in many types of historical inquiries. Although modern historians tend to view these large-scale maps essentially as sources of data on past economies and societies, this book argues that enclosure maps had a much more active role at the time they were compiled. Seen from this perspective of their contemporary society, enclosure maps are not simply antiquarian curiosities, cultural artefacts, or useful sources for historians but instruments of land reorganisation and control which both reflected and consolidated the power of those who commissioned them. The book is accompanied by a fully searchable, descriptive and analytical web catalogue of all parliamentary and non-parliamentary enclosure maps extant in public archives and libraries and offers an essential research tool for economic, social and local historians and for geographers, lawyers and planners.

The stories in this haunting collection are as ancient and modern, powerful and fantastical, ambiguous and ambivalent as the ghosts they feature.

Richly illustrated with original drawings, these tales are perfect for reading under the covers on dark, stormy nights.
