Salisbury Past by Ruth Newman
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A 13th-century planned town, Salisbury's medieval layout can be easily traced and it is still dominated by its magnificent cathedral. Explaining the city's development, as a market, an industrial town, a transport hub and a county's social centre, the authors have very successfully met the challenge and produced an easy-to-read narrative. " ... a treasure trove of old photographs, maps and engravings ... a fascinating chronological journey ..." Western Daily Press
