This second volume on Norfolk provides a comprehensive survey from prehistoric times to the present day. The 17th- and 18th-century treasures of King's Lynn are explored, as well as the market towns of Swaffham and Wymondham. Castle remains and medieval churches are also explored.In the early 1780s another new idiom came to Norfolk houses, not a national style but the spare and idiosyncratic NEO- CLASSICISM of Sir ... Park, begun 2/106 in 1784, Saxlingham Nethergate Rectory of 1784-7 and the Chedgrave and Thurton Lodges to Langley Park, designed in 2/94, 1784. ... Space does not permit an indication of INTERIOR DECORATION other than to direct the reader to the best.
