A Descriptive and Historical View of Alnwick


A new presentation of William Davison’s 1822 book


ISBN 978-0-9934123-4-9

In 1822, Alnwick printer, William Davison, published his most famous book, A Descriptive and Historical View of Alnwick. This painted a portrait of the town at a point in history just prior to it experiencing the rapid changes of the Industrial Revolution.


Following this initial publication, the work was reprinted in 1973 as a facsimile. This latest edition takes the text of Davison’s original work and presents it in a format intended to make it more accessible to the modern reader.
