9781566499767: London Hidden Interiors: An English Heritage Book

Given the remorseless pace of change from 1870 onwards, and the catastrophic damage inflicted during the Second World War, one might be forgiven for thinking that much of London’s architectural heritage had been obliterated, and that what survived was given the coup de grace by insensitive post-war planning and architecture. But this is not the case. A wealth of treasures that the public know little about can still be found hidden behind London’s inscrutable facades.

In contrast to the perceived lack of concern at the loss of so much of London’s heritage in the first part of the 20th century, today there is unprecedented public interest in its history and buildings and, not least, what lies behind closed doors inside the offices, institutions, clubs and private houses that so many pass every day; from the discreet grandeur of Whitehall and clubland to the fascinating subterranean spaces that lie beneath the capital. The hugely popular annual Open House London event has created access to over 750 buildings and places normally closed to the public and now attracts more than a quarter of a million visitors.

London: Hidden Interiors has 180 examples which have been selected from a complete range of building types to convey the richness and diversity of London’s architectural heritage, and the secrets that lie within. Each has had to earn its place, and most deserve much greater coverage than can be accorded here. The selection is an entirely personal one. It concentrates generally on the buildings and interiors that are less well known and to which the public are not normally allowed access – the hidden and the unusual, the quirky and the eccentric, although there is space too for some of the better known. A number celebrate unsung conservation successes of recent years, which deserve greater recognition.

About the Author:

As a chartered town planner, historian and international expert in heritage conservation, Philip Davies has been in the forefront of managing change to London’s most important historic buildings and places for over 35 years, most recently as the Planning and Development Director for London and South-East England at English Heritage. He is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, a Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society and a Trustee of the Heritage of London Trust. Philip’s most recent books Lost London 1870-1945 and Panoramas of Lost London (both also available from Welcome Rain) were published to huge acclaim.

With over 40 years experience Derek Kendall is one of the most talented and respected Architectural and Fine Art photographers of his time. With his intimate knowledge of London’s built heritage and an exceptional eye for detail, Derek’s pictures have graced the pages of over 60 publications.

From Booklist:

After the German airstrikes during WWII destroyed many buildings in London, a concerted effort was made to preserve historic buildings and places. This gorgeous book captures the interiors of 180 different places throughout London, mostly private buildings or areas with restricted public access. Examples include the ornate ceilings and floors of Freemason’s Hall; the decaying walls and stairs of an abandoned subway station in Kingsway; and the regal dining hall of the Charterhouse monastery, where Sir Thomas More found retreat in 1499. There is also a peek inside Lloyd’s of London and the Ministry of Defence. Each entry has a descriptive narrative and two to four pages of brilliant color photographs—1,700 photographs in all. Readers interested in architecture, historical interior design, or British history will find much to treasure in this work. --Rebecca Vnuk
