This new edition of Walks Round Red Brick with additional text by Christopher Hammond vividly brings to life again Maurice Beresford’s 1980s classic account of the campus of the University of Leeds. The University’s rich architectural heritage of buildings dating from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the Victorian red brick of the Yorkshire College, the Portland stone and reinforced concrete eras of the twentieth century to the present is graphically recorded in a series of entertaining walks originally described by Professor Beresford but now brought up to date by Dr Hammond. These in turn are lavishly illustrated by Ruth Baumberg’s stunning colour photography. Whether it be the student of architecture, the local historian, university alumni or the general reader, this book is essential reading.
