Architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner lived here.

Location: 2 Wildwood Terrace, Hampstead, London

Description: Architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner (1902-1983) lived here. Author of the Pevsner guides and 'The Buildings of England'.

The Pevsner Architectural Guides, were begun in 1951 with the aim of providing an up-to-date portable guide to the most significant buildings in every part of the country, suitable for both general reader and specialist.

The success of the volumes covering The Buildings of England led to the extension of the series to Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Each volume provides an introductory overview of the architecture of the area, followed by a descriptive gazetteer arranged alphabetically by place.

Whilst cathedrals and their furnishings, great country houses and their parks form the grand set pieces, the books demonstrate the enjoyable diversity of architecture in the British Isles in accounts of rural churches and farmsteads, Victorian public buildings and industrial monuments.
