John Dodsley Webster, Architect

Recommended Posts


Extract :

John Dodsley Webster (1840-1913) was much more typical of the unsung local architect than W. J. Hale. The scope of his work encompassed the whole range open to an architect: churches, public and commercial buildings, villas and small houses, additions and extensions. Capable of working in a variety of different styles at the behest of his clients, it would be unfair to compare his designs with those of the leading London-based architects. Nonetheless, he created well-crafted buildings appropriate to their settings, often on a limited budget.
