Most famous for Gloucester Cathedral and Tewkesbury Abbey, this county also boasts intriguing monastic remains at Gloucester, fine houses in stucco and stone in the great Regency spa town of Cheltenham, and post-war suspension bridges reaching over the Severn.

“Alan Brooks completes his great endeavor of revising the Gloucestershire parts of The Buildings of England. . . . This reviewer could find nothing that had been missed in the way of buildings omitted or dates or architects that are known not being recorded, and an astonishing consistency in picking up recent changes to buildings, some of which occurred even while the volume was in the press.”—Nicholas Kingsley, Transactions of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society
