    The Benedictine Abbey of Downside in Somerset is one of the glories of the Gothic Revival, its mighty tower a landmark for miles. Written by leading architectural historians including Gavin Stamp and Alan Powers, this handsome book traces the story of its creation from Pugin's conception to its completion by Giles Gilbert Scott. Richly illustrated with drawings, plans, archive photographs and dramatic new colour images, this study is both an architectural record and a celebration of an inspirational place.
