The May Historic Building Calendar

Georgian – Charlotte Square, Edinburgh
- Click Image to Enlarge

The Georgian period witnessed the construction of a series of planned grand squares and terraces, providing elegant and peaceful homes away from the noise and grime of city centres. In London Cavendish Square was laid out in 1717, followed by Grosvenor Square (1720), Berkley Square (1739) and Adam’s Fitzroy Square in 1790. Away from the capital, Bath was laid out by John Wood and his son, beginning with Queen’s Square in 1729 and culminating with the Royal Crescent in 1775. Edinburgh New Town was planned by James Craig in 1767 and was built by a variety of architects; Robert Adam designed Charlotte Square in 1791, shortly before his death.
