Books on Historic Buildings in Kent

The Buildings of England series was originally published by Penguin Books, but Yale University has now taken over and the series now covers England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The series has a website :

Most counties are covered by a single volume, but Kent has three:

This last volume covers all of London south of the Thames and includes those London Boroughs formerly part of Kent. There is some overlap with West Kent and the Weald.

GAZETTEER OF MEDIEVAL HOUSES IN KENT
