The ‘Pevsner’ series, founded by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner in 1951, is the unrivalled authority on the architecture of the British Isles. The third edition of ‘Wiltshire’ will be given its first outing at CVHF. It  is the most comprehensive and essential guide to Wiltshire’s architectural heritage from prehistory to the present day. Julian Orbach, the editor, will give a dazzling illustrated talk from the stone circles at Stonehenge and Avebury to railway age Swindon, covering magnificent Salisbury Cathedral, Marlborough, Devizes, medieval Lacock, Elizabethan Longleat, Palladian Wilton, classical Stourhead, Bowood and Corsham Court as well as many churches and abbeys in between.
