Description

In LOST BUILDINGS OF BRITAIN leading historian Simon Thurley takes a journey into our nation's past and reveals the hidden narratives behind what we have lost from our historic landscape. Today they are ruins, destroyed by fire, neglect, war and even progress. But once they were places of great importance and beauty. Sifting through the remains, Thurley paints a fascinating portrait of how our ancestors once lived and worked. LOST BUILDINGS OF BRITAIN is accompanied by a six-part television series on Channel 4. The six buildings are: Glastonbury Abbey, the Palace of Whitehall, Nottingham Castle, Millbank Penitentiary, Fonthill Abbey and the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
