This informative and beautifully illustrated book looks at a wide selection of these, from castles that have been destroyed or replaced by modern mansions, to country houses that have succumbed to dry rot or lack of funds for their upkeep. Dane Love also visits various burghs and villages, rediscovering the lost architecture of everyday buildings including churches, banks, tollbooths, public halls, schools, shops and houses. Ayrshire was once rich in mining and other industries that have now disappeared. This book details the countys lost coalmines and the associated miners rows, as well as former cotton mills, power stations, shipyards, factories and other places of work. As well as lost buildings from the distant past, Dane Love includes some more recent examples of architectural losses. In some cases these are welcome, but in many they are regrettable. Only through this book will the reader discover just how much of Ayrshires heritage has been lost over the years.
