'The result is a useful compendium ...'. The English Historical Review 'On the whole few collected volumes contain so much good scholarship as does the Cambridge Urban History of Britain, and it will be, no doubt, the starting-point for any future research in the field of British urban history.' London Journal ' ... the area surveys will doubtless prove to be of great value for students of landscape history, particularly for the purpose of contextualising local studies of towns and their hinterlands ... this is an important, landmark publication in British urban history ... every county and city record office should have one, for not only will the Cambridge Urban History volumes become the first port of call for landscape historians starting out with a new research project, but they doubtless will become the authoritative yardstick against which to check and compare our work.'
