Six English Towns/Six More English Towns/Another Bloody Six English Towns

EPITOME OF CHEAPO look-at-this pointy telly. Chirpy curmudgeon ALEC CLIFTON-TAYLOR loitered down your local high street exposing architectural “glories” of otherwise-shitty looking corner shops, tea rooms and ever-present labour exchange. Buttresses, apses, oriels, mullions and pediments a-plenty. Eponymous venues were, for t’record, Chichester, Richmond, Tewkesbury, Stamford, Totnes, Ludlow, Warwick, Berwick-Upon-Tweed, Saffron Walden, Lewes, Bradford Upon-Avon, Beverley, Cirencester, Whitby, Bury St. Edmonds, Devizes, Sandwich and Durham.

    Alec was born in 1907 and died in 1985 at the age of 77. He was a great historian and the Six English Towns series was somethingcchildren certainly took an interest in. Now that Alec is no longer with us, somebody my age will have to a study on Six European towns.
