Media Reviews
Sub-titled The Very Best of Northern Architecture, this is Grundy's attempt to redress what he sees as a southern conspiracy to hide or ignore the architectural delights of the north of England: from castles and cathedrals to ruined abbeys; from Blackpool tower to Salts Mill; and from workers' back-to-backs to a selection of high street chip shops. He never fails to convey his enthusiasm not just for the buildings in question, but for their contexts and histories - and does so in an engaging manner which combines humour with learning lightly worn. He's an ex-teacher turned TV and radio presenter with his own architecture series on Tyne-Tees Television for the past seven years. A real pleasure either to dip into or read right through.
