England’s Post-War Listed Buildings is a comprehensive and stylish guide to over 500 of the country’s most striking and historically relevant architectural gems, from private houses to schools, churches, military buildings, monuments and parks.
Listed buildings include traditional works by Raymond Erith and Donald McMorran and many of the ‘pop icons’ of the 1960s (including Centre Point). Also featured are internationally outstanding modern works like Stirling and Gowan’s Leicester Engineering Building and Foster Associates’ offices for Willis Faber Dumas in Ipswich.

Each entry is illustrated with photographs and includes information on architect, date of construction and listing grade date, as well as a detailed description of the site and what makes it unique.
