An historical introduction to a diverse area as well as a detailed gazetteer of individual buildings. Along the Thames, relics of a powerful industrial and maritime past remain, and in the East End, Hawksmoor’s Baroque churches still tower over Georgian houses.

Further out, medieval churches and country mansions stand among the suburban streets and proud civic buildings.
