Real Heritage Pubs of the North West
This definitive and unique new guide is the result of many years’ research by CAMRA to discover pubs that have truly historic surviving interiors in an area ranging from the Cheshire plain to the Lake District. It provides descriptions and information on over 200 pubs, amongst which there are unspoilt country locals, Victorian drinking palaces and mighty roadhouses. The book has features on how the pub developed, what’s distinctive about pubs in the North West, how people a century ago could expect to be served drinks at their table, and how they used the pub for take-out sales in the pre-supermarket era.
Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs throughout, includes county maps showing pub locations.
The editor architectural historian Geoff Brandwood is passionate about pubs, and is a former chairman of the Victorian Society. He is author of Britain’s Best Real Heritage Pubs (2013), London Heritage Pubs (2008), both for CAMRA, and co-author of English Heritage’s acclaimed Licensed to Sell (2011).
A wonderful addition to CAMRA’s heritage series.
