Have you ever looked at one of our great historical buildings and wondered how on earth it was built? Well now you can get the answer from a man who devoted his life to that question, Fred Dibnah. Fred takes us to some of the country's most famous castles, cathedrals, abbeys, great houses and bridges, and gives precise explanations of how they were constructed at a time when technology was limited and there were no power tools, no concrete, no steel, no engines and no heavy machinery. Illustrated with Fred's own beautifully executed drawings, published here for the first time, we explore engineering marvels such as St Paul's Cathedral, the Humber Bridge and Blackpool Tower. Fred's passion for the traditional skills of builders, carpenters, stonemasons and structural engineers shines through on every page. "Fred Dibnah's Buildings of Britain" is a celebration of the architectural and engineering feats that made Britain great.
