Pevsner in Surrey: Nickolas Pevsner and the Buildings of Surrey
This lecture explores what Pevsner, a German refugee from Hitler said, rightly or wrongly, about Surrey buildings – churches, houses, shops, tower blocks, factories, cinemas – and sets his pronouncements in the context of “The Buildings of England” as a whole.
