Salisbury
in Detail – Salisbury Civic Society

- this book is a collection of details from buildings in Salisbury. It’s fascinating – there are photos of things like the Dragon on the top of the Chough, a Winston Churchill door knocker and a set of faded painted advertisements.

The cover image is a good example of the appeal of the book. It’s a ‘Green Man’ near to the entrance of the Salisbury Wetherspoons. I’d never noticed it before. The book has a foreward by Terry Pratchett

Endless Street: A History of Salisbury and Its People- on the back cover the English Historical Review is quoted as saying that it’s “a local history intended for a general readership which also has much to offer specialists”. I’d agree with this – I thought ‘Endless Street’ was very good. It’s very readable, but offers both detail and insight.

The book is divided into six chapters – Nativity, Maturity, Working, Travelling, Governing and Living. These chapters are further sub-divided into sections – for example ‘Travelling’ has sections on early roads, canals, stagecoaches, railways and cars. The illustrations, which are ‘infographic’, in style are wonderful.

    Hi,

    I’m looking for engravings or drawings of the old Winchester gate. (not the Pub)
